Yoga is popular for rejuvenating minds, bodies and spirits in today’s fast-paced society. Most traditional yoga styles don’t raise the heart rate high enough or long enough to be a substitute for cardio exercise, but yoga is a natural complement to both cardio and strength workouts.
Yoga can provide a deeper stretch than traditional stretching moves. With age and overuse, hips, hamstrings, ankles, knees and even feet need more attention and the gentle, low-impact yoga postures will help stretch and tone muscles, relieve muscular tension, increase elasticity, lubricate joints and keep ligaments healthy.
Since yoga is also a stress fighter, practicing it naturally lowers cortisol levels and increases a sense of self-esteem.
