Begin by standing tall and still on your yoga mat. Next, a deep breathing exercise to connect your mind with your body. As your body slowly warms, the sweat will begin to flow. Keep breathing. If you listen carefully, work honestly and try the right way, you will develop discipline, patience, and courage. You will realign and balance your body, and come closer to your true self. Yoga can change the way you think about everyday things – change your mind, heal your body, and change your life! Yoga can show you the way.
Stretching will make you more flexible, but you do not have to be flexible to receive the powerful health benefits of yoga. Yoga poses are simply the medium by which the internal systems of the body are stimulated and realigned to promote general health and well-being. As alignment improves, so does the potential for change. Over time, you’ll gain self-knowledge and a deeper understanding of your Whole Self. Yoga may seem strange at first but keep trying. With a bit of practice it will become very natural, and intrinsically rewarding. Besides, it just feels good!
Heat allows your muscles to stretch safely and your joints to move more freely.
Heat increases metabolism, assisting with weight loss and maintenance.
Elevated core temperatures help immune cells work better at fighting viral and bacterial infections before they take hold.
Heat causes vasodilation, allowing arteries and veins to relax and widen. This results in less vascular resistance which is particularly powerful in treating hypertension.
It also increases plasma volume and triggers the body to produce more oxygen-carrying red blood cells. This helps perform normal activities more easily and increase athletic performance when looking for a competitive edge.
