Give Your Workout a Mental Boost!

Friday, March 29, 2019



No matter what you do for exercise - spinning, kick-boxing, or CrossFit - add in some yoga for a mental boost!

Incorporating yoga into your workout routine can totally benefit your mental health. Research has found that people performed better—both speed-wise and accuracy-wise—on brain functioning tests after practicing 20 minutes of yoga.

When practiced together, the connection between mind and body, improves overall fitness and wellbeing. 

 

Yoga increases body awareness, relieves stress, reduces muscle tension, strain, and inflammation, sharpens attention and concentration, and calms and centers the nervous system. Yoga's positive benefits on mental health have made it an important practice tool of psychotherapy (American Psychological Association).

 

Adding yoga to your workouts helps improve functional mobility and sharpens the mind to enhance performance. This prevents injury and prolongs the lifespan of activity.

Try yoga as you begin any workout. It get your blood flowing and rids the body of toxins.
