At Authentic Health Studio, we make it our business to know what’s good for your health and fitness, which is why we don’t offer a single solution. Our Personal Training and Semi-Private Personal Training programs are designed specifically for the individual, however, we recognise and embrace variety in our workouts, which is why you can now elevate your current program with complimentary yoga classes.
Just like good nutrition requires a variety of healthy foods to fuel your body properly, (a diet of only broccoli, salmon, and blueberries are not going to sustain you for long) a variety of movements in your training program is going to develop additional areas of strength and ultimately enhance your current workout. We take a holistic approach to fitness and this is where yoga compliments your routine.
What Is Yoga
Yoga is a range of different physical poses and postures, which are held for a specific length of time and incorporate breathing exercises and breath awareness. Poses are held to develop physical strength and flexibility while focusing on relaxation, concentration, and meditation, to create harmony between mind, body, and spirit.
The movements are both gentle and powerful as they stretch, lengthen, and tone muscles without stressing them. This improves your body’s ability to absorb oxygen, increasing stamina and endurance.
The breathing exercises involved in yoga teach you to manage your oxygen intake more efficiently, which can make it easier for you to carry out everyday tasks. The improved balance, flexibility, and range of motion that you get from yoga exercise reduces aching muscles and joints. Adding yoga into a personal training routine will enhance the benefits of each discipline.
Who Is Yoga For
Because of its gentle nature, yoga workouts are recommended for everyone. It is suited for older people who may be carrying injuries or physical limitations, pregnant women, and their partners who are looking for activities they can share, there’s yoga for beginners who have not exercised consistently for some time and of course, anyone who is looking for lean, elongated muscles that improve flexibility and posture.
And for those who want to create a more holistic approach to wellness; yoga exercises will reduce stress and shift your energy in the direction of a more calming space. Breath awareness will oxygenate your blood, and move you towards aligning yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally.
