Yoga at Yoga Southgate involves many unique movements in addition to classic movements, such as down dogs, planks, and other variations of movements. All this balance training is not possible in your weight lifting class.
Through these unique movements, your body will be encouraged to develop muscle capacity in a new and completely unexpected way, to strengthen the body’s balance muscles and improve joint health over time. You will get stronger, that is certain, but you will also hone the weak joints that you have not known so far, to prevent injury the next time you exercise. In other words, yoga classes will cover many of the basic aspects that you think you have done (but may not) with routine injury prevention and increased mobility.
If you are a gym enthusiast, you will understand that there are certain days where you have to rest but are required to stay active; not with burdensome physical exercise. Yoga is the right choice of activity to fill in the “emptiness” of the day, where you can stay active while getting time for relaxation and muscle recovery, in order to maintain fitness and prepare you for the next gym session.
In addition to helping improve physical balance, yoga will encourage you to explore your body’s capacity with complicated poses, to let you know where your body’s weakness really is.
In addition, yoga is effective to help you deal with stress. Compared to having to frantically punch a punching bag in the gym to release the daily routine, which can make you even more tired and aggressive, yoga allows you to be calmer overall, involving a combination of mind meditation, breathing exercises, and body relaxation techniques.
Over time, yoga will train you to begin to change your diet and lifestyle instinctively. You will no longer feel the need to smoke or party all night, knowing that this will damage what you have been struggling to wake up all this time. During yoga, your mind can pause to stay focused and calm to see the big picture of the real problem and act on the basis of self-integrity, not pseudo panic. In short, focus, productivity, and insight into creativity can all be improved by regular yoga.
