A recent study by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance revealed that 36 million Americans practice yoga. And every one of you yogis have a lot more in common than you might realize. Most of you do yoga for three reasons 1. To improve flexibility, 2. To reduce stress, and 3. To improve your fitness level. It’s also interesting that nearly 80% of you give back to your communities. Go Yoga!
In the spirit of giving back, we have a few tips you can do today in your yoga practice, whether you’re a beginner or advanced, young/old, man/woman… doesn’t matter. And it doesn’t matter what kind of yoga you do either.
While these tips might seem obvious, they are often overlooked. Give them a try (or remember to do them) and get more out of yoga.
These are all things you can do today and immediately improve your yoga practice. If you’re already doing them, good for you. Spread the word and improve the practice of those around you. Lead by example!
Finally, if you practice yoga, it is a fact that you are much more likely to engage in other forms of exercise, like running, swimming, cycling, and/or weightlifting. We recommend incorporating a zero-impact exercise into your fitness regimen – isometrics. It is the perfect fit for yoga conditioning. Isometric workouts increase strength, flexibility, and stamina, all of which are necessary if you want to hold yoga poses longer and learn more advanced poses and sequences.
