Staying in the best shape possible is imperative. A well rounded workout can help make this goal a true reality. Those who work out know that part of any workout must be the ability to concentrate and develop inner core strength. The development of inner core strength allows any person to exercise enough to get to their target heart rate. It also allows people to work out for a longer period of time. One of the best ways to develop such important skills is with a thoughtful workout plan that focuses attention on all the body’s muscles and makes sure they work them fully. Today, more than ever, people are turning to ancient forms of exercise to get in the best shape possible. [Read more…]
While people have been doing yoga for over 5,000 years, it really only got started in this country in the 1970s. We have a lot of catching up to do, and most people don’t realize how truly beneficial yoga is for body and mind. And many don’t realize how fun it can be.
You don’t have to know what “Namaste” means. And if you think that “Downward dog” is a pet-command, that’s okay, too. Our Fitness Connection gym in Pasadena wants to help nurture your inner-yogi and help you achieve better health with the powerful mind-body connection of yoga.
We want to be a part of your fitness journey…and yoga will benefit you from the inside out. Sure, yoga increases flexibility and reduces stress. That’s a given. But your yoga practice can achieve more than twisting your body into a pretzel shape and finding inner peace. Yoga comes with unexpected benefits, too. And these perks will help you leave the gym with a smile on your face.
3 Health Benefits You Didn’t Know About
- Greater immunity—According to one study in particular, yoga can boost immunity at a cellular level. And it happens while you’re in class, right there on the mat. Yoga also helps to boost immunity by simply increasing overall health and reducing stress. Greater strength and fluidity, more awareness of proper breathing, and improved circulation combine to help all organs in your body to function better.
- Better sleep—Doing yoga on a regular basis has been shown to improve sleep and lessen insomnia. And if you have a chronic illness, regular yoga sessions can help you sleep better and feel less fatigued. Yoga helps you deal better with stress in many ways, including awareness of breath and increased confidence. These all combine to sleep more restfully.
- Migraine relief—Yoga students report having fewer and less painful migraines after only three months of regular practice/classes. Migraines remain a bit of a medical mystery, but are most likely a combination of physical misalignment and mental/emotional stress. Yoga helps relieve both of these things!
And, of course, our yoga classes at your gym in Pasadena will sculpt, tone, limber, and refine your body and mind, alike. We welcome all fitness levels, regardless of prior experience in a gym or in yoga classes. Our trained instructors bring their own experience and style to each class.
