Winter is here, and with it comes the many excuses to stay inside. But don’t let the cold keep you from your yoga practice! Here are 7 reasons to stick with it.
- Yoga is Warm
Cold makes you feel stiff & sluggish. Hence roll out your yoga mat because warming up your muscles & joints is good for the body, improves circulation, reducing stiffness & cramping.
- Yoga Boosts Your Immune System
Regular exercise strengthens the immune system. Keep that first line of defence ready to battle the germs with lots of rest, water, & of course, yoga three times a week or more.
- Yoga Boosts Your Energy, Too
Have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? Sleep in your yoga clothes, then roll out of bed and into the studio — no excuses!
- Yoga Improves Those Long Winter Naps
Make sure you stick to your bedtime routine. Stop eating two hours before bed, go to bed at a decent hour.
- Yoga Opens Your Heart
To fight the blues this winter make time for pranayama & meditation practice. When your mind is happy & calm, you will be happy & calm.
- Yoga Keeps You in Balance
All the holiday parties, cookies, candies, treats can pack on the extra pounds. Shed the guilt by balancing your indulgences with some calorie-burning asana classes.
- Yoga Will Keep You Grounded
Yoga practice promotes mental clarity, a sense of security, & a healthy muladhara chakra. Keep it up.
