7 Reasons To Practice Yoga This Winter

December 23, 2017

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Yoga Will Keep You Grounded
    Yoga practice promotes mental clarity, a sense of security, & a healthy muladhara chakra. Keep it up.
