yoga as a form of exercise

Posted Mar 03 2008 4:08pm

I’ve been thinking about signing up for a yoga class since I have read that yoga will teach you breathing techniques that will prepare you for some other exercise. In yoga classes, students must often learn breathing techniques that help calm the spirit and focus the mind. With these techniques you will be able to breathe fully and there will be more oxygen going to your brain and throughout the other parts of the body. By practicing yoga, you will be able to do cardiovascular exercises for a longer period of time, since you will not be so quickly out of breath. I suppose that is why most yoga classes are equipped with quality air cleaners in the classrooms.

Since yoga will help you to increase flexibility, you will be able to prevent some injures when you are doing other sports or exercises. Yoga can be viewed as an entire exercise regimen focused on stretching muscles. It also helps minimize and prevent injuries because yoga allows you to find your limits. This is important when practicing any sort of physical activity.
