Four Reasons Why You Should Attend Yoga Classes

Weight Loss

If you’re like many Wilmington residents, then shedding a few pounds is probably one of your main resolutions. While holding poses for an hour may not sound like an intense workout, we can almost guarantee that you’ll be thoroughly worn out after your first few classes. Yoga classes require you to use muscles you don’t normally use in your day-to-day life, and more vigorous forms of yoga such as Bikram and Vinyasa are designed to increase your heart rate and boost your metabolism.

Posture

The vast majority of us could use some help with our posture. Whether you have tight muscles from infrequent stretching, or you sit at a desk for the majority of the day, it’s easy for bad posture and improper alignment to cause you pain and discomfort throughout the day. Yoga requires you to develop flexibility and core strength, which are both crucial for anyone looking to improve their posture.

Reduced Stress 

While any form of exercise will help you relax and destress, yoga classes are a particularly effective way to decrease your stress levels by centering your mind and body. At our Wilmington yoga studio, we teach our students various breathing techniques that are designed to help you focus on your moment-to-moment experiences, instead of everything else that might normally keep your mind preoccupied. Numerous studies have shown that yoga can help you relieve the symptoms of anxiety and depression, so come try our yoga classes for a mindful start to the new year!

Improved Sleep

As we mentioned in the previous section, regularly attending yoga classes is an excellent way to declutter your mind and find a sense of balance. Stress affects the body in numerous ways, and if you’re like many stressed-out Americans, then your sleep may be one of the first things to be compromised. The stress-relieving effects of yoga will last well into the night, and studies show that regular yoga practitioners are able to fall asleep easier and stay asleep for longer than non-practitioners. You’ll notice the difference when you begin waking up feeling energized and ready to take on the day!
