Now more than ever, we can rely on the tools and exercises readily available to reduce mental and physical stress to our bodies. Although it is definitely easier said than done, we can use Yoga as an escape during these crazy times (even if it is only for a few minutes!). Practicing it on a regular basis gives us the perfect opportunity to watch ourselves grow and improve, however, it is so important that we still remain kind to ourselves.
Currently with everyone being at home and on social media, we may start to feel pressured into being more productive, whilst this may motivate many, for some of us it can start to impact our mood negatively. It is perfectly ok to give our mind and bodies a rest, especially during uncertain periods. Nevertheless, if you are looking for ways to revitalize or unwind, then I would say definitely give Yoga at try as it may pleasantly surprise you!
You don’t need a fancy yoga mat, you don’t have to be flexible and you’re not expected to commit to it for hours on end. All that is needed is your physical and mental presence and you will start to experience the incredible benefits of the practice.
Some of the benefits (and there are so many!) you can expect to see and feel include relieving stress by creating awareness and bringing us back into the present moment, increase in energy, better flexibility and posture and improve your strength and shape.
Please keep in mind that yoga is a continuous practice! So, don’t be too hard on yourself at the start, you may find it tricky and challenging at times but keep practicing (you may surprise yourself).
