Yoga is much more than an exercise routine to get in shape, because in addition to toning the body, it reconnects the mind; It is a two-for-one discipline that manages to renew us on the outside and reset us on the inside with hardly any cost. Because yoga is that quiet and calm sport where the muscles work and tone up -and a lot- almost without cost. “It has the power to connect body, mind and breath, it helps to work the joints and the muscular fascia, to gain more flexibility and to relax the body to have a more restful sleep and be able to rest better”.
Get away from your everyday routine and join us for a yoga weekend at a beautiful location with lovely encounters with inspiring people.
How Long To Practice Yoga
The idea is to dedicate a few minutes to ourselves. It doesn’t have to be very long, but it does have to be an exclusive time: find a place for yourself that is not too noisy or crowded, to be able to concentrate better and disconnect. And stay away from all electronic devices (phone, computer…): these are a few minutes that we should enjoy without distractions, calls or messages that only cause us not to get out of that loop of anxiety and stress that surrounds us daily.
The expert recommends practicing yoga first thing in the morning (or late in the afternoon), and not eating for at least two hours before doing it. If time permits, “a good option is to treat yourself to a yoga session as soon as you wake up before breakfast. This way, the rest of the day will be free to do any activity.”
What Happens If You Do Yoga Every Day
Practicing yoga daily “can improve the functioning of the internal organs through specific breathing techniques, cleanse the body of accumulated liquids, maintain a state of relaxation and fill the body with energy, vitality and positivism.” But we should not only think about detoxifying the body, ” eliminating toxins is also synonymous with eliminating everything that is toxic in our lives: stress, pessimism, lack of energy, tiredness, bad mood…”, explains the expert.
