YOGA. THE FULL BODY AND MIND PERFORMANCE SOLUTION.
Each of us practice yoga for a variety of reasons. Some physical. Some are emotional. Getting stronger? Losing weight? Gaining more flexibility? Increasing your overall level of calmness and well-being? We’re betting many of these sound familiar, and relatable.
But, do you ALL of the benefits you are receiving from yoga that you don’t get from other forms of exercise? Let’s face it, more than ever, time is a precious commodity, so each of us need to always use it wisely. Yoga allows you to check MULTIPLE BOXES all at the same time, such that you can maximize your productivity.
As we at Y2 like to say, Shut Up and Flow, and before long you will be reaping many of the benefits of yoga including:
Protection from injury
Joint breakdown prevention
Increased blood flow
Drops in blood pressure
Regulation of adrenal glands
Lowered blood sugar
In addition to the above one of the greatest gains you can earn at Y2 is that the flow strengthens and tones your body, as it works nearly all of your core muscles. During yoga, you’re required to hold yourself in one position for an extended period of time, as well as use your body weight and strength to move fluidly through poses. The more yoga you do, the more your body can tone and strengthen Not to mention, as you’ve learned, YOGA at Y2 makes you a Happy, Bad A**.
