Are you still deciding on which type of exercise is best for your body? Very few of us have time to incorporate strength training and aerobic activity into our already busy schedule, needless to say the energy. Yoga kicks all types of workouts’ derrieres in every sense, plus it can get your own butt into shape.
More and more celebrities are making yoga their main form of exercise, due to the fact that it works every nook and cranny of your body all at once. Yoga uses your body-weight as a form of strength training, without building bulky muscles. Almost every single yoga pose engages your core to help stabilize your body, which means your abdomen is getting the best workout.
Yoga also is an excellent cardiovascular activity as it gets your heart pumping, if you don’t believe me just trying doing a series of sun salutations at a fast steady pace. Plus, yoga doesn’t only help you lose weight, but it keeps your mind focused on following a healthy diet.
