 Yoga Exercises


Yoga exercises strengthen your body and make you more flexible. Yoga also calms your mind and gives you energy. In active sports or strenuous exercise, it uses up energy. In yoga classes, students report that they feel calm after a class, but have more energy. Slow and steady movement is the key to getting into or out of poses. You hold a yoga pose for several seconds or even minutes and pay attention to full, calm breathing. Your yoga instructor will always encourage you to relax while performing the exercises.

You gently place your body in yoga poses. If done correctly, there is very little chance of injury or muscle strain. A particular asana is not repeated dozens of times, nor are you encouraged to overexert yourself.

A yoga session is designed to maintain balance. You stretch to the right and then to the left. You lean back and then forward. Learn to recognize when one side is stronger or more flexible than the other. In this way, harmony and balance are achieved through the practice of yoga.





People of all ages can practice yoga exercises. They are easily modified to suit your needs and physical condition. Don't be intimidated by the difficult postures you may see in a yoga book. A skilled teacher can adapt most asanas using chairs, cushions, even a wall or other props. A yoga practice can be tailored to you. If something is really impossible for you, forget it. Never compete with yourself or others. Yoga is a powerful but stress-free way to exercise.

Yoga is good for increasing flexibility and relieving stress, but it does not replace aerobic exercise. You should still get regular aerobic exercise, which increases your cardiovascular fitness, helps you lose weight and, at least for people with non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes, improves blood glucose control.
