The average individual will burn over 500 calories in a one-hour Vinyasa (DAMA FLOW) yoga class.
There’s no doubt yoga has proven to increase flexibility. However don’t fooled by its meditative approach as yoga can also significantly increase your body’s overall strength and core stability. Take a Yin Class to work on flexibility, or a Power Flow class if you’re hoping to get stronger!
The practice of quieting the mind is often studied in yoga. If you have difficulty ‘turning off your brain’ when trying to fall asleep, you’ll notice a significant difference in just a few short months. Yoga has also proven to increase the quality of your sleep, allowing you to awake feeling more rested.
A study from the University of Oxford stated yogic stretching and pranayama (breathing techniques) produced a significantly greater increase in perceptions of mental and physical energy and feelings of alertness and enthusiasm.
Physical activity has been proven to help reduce stress. Yoga, in particular, has demonstrated the ability to help manage and handle current stress levels. Medical studies also suggests that yoga can be considered as a complementary therapy or an alternative method for medical therapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders.
