So, being that September is National Yoga Month (I just found that out today!), a nice little freebie has come your way! Go to this link to sign up for a free week of yoga at any of the 1600 participating national locations during the month of September! Megacool! (Thanks, Hip2save!)
Or, if you don’t feel like actually going out to a location and trying a class, why don’t you give it a try in your own home? I, personally, think yoga is amazing! I started practicing yoga about six years ago. I was at a point in my life when my husband and I wanted to start trying for a baby, so I was on a mission to do what I could to live healthily! I gave yoga a try and never stopped doing it after that! Not only does it calm me, but it can give me a great workout when I want it to! It has helped me ease headaches and body aches & pains, aids in digestion, and stretches out all of that tension that builds up in my muscles after a crazy day! The great thing about yoga is that it truly is “your practice.” You get to pick and choose the poses you want to do according to what you want out of your workout. Read more here about the benefits of yoga.
Here are a couple of links to some nice yoga workouts that I would recommend:
This link features a video with Shiva Rea, a world renowned Yoga master. It is only a few minutes in length, but gives you a good idea of what yoga should look like. I would recommend watching the video through at least once before trying it on your own!
This link explains the different types of yoga, as there are many!
This link allows you to build your own yoga sequence and keep a journal about it! It even shows you what the poses should look like!
Try this link for a detailed explanation as to how to do each pose and what the terminology for each pose means.
I really hope you can find some time to try yoga this month if you are new to it, or pick up your yoga practice if you have let it go lately. Your body will love you for it!
