7 Reasons Why Yoga Is The Healing Therapy You Need

Spending our days in office and excessive overtime has taken many things away from us. Active life and peace of mind are the two most important things on that list. Furthermore, sitting in the office for long hours makes us lazy which can be easily identified with a desk hunchback most of us have.

However, there’s one way that can help us fix this and improve our posture – Yoga.

 

  1. A specially designed Yoga sequence can help you loosen up the muscles of your upper body, releasing the stress that leads to the hunchback posture.
  2. It takes you to a refreshing and optimistic state of mind which makes you reconnect with your positive thoughts.
  3. It takes away the tension and tightness of your muscles which reduces your back pain and helps you maintain a better posture throughout the day.
  4. A bad posture and mind filled with stress may not help you make a good impression. But, practising Yoga regularly will definitely help you maintain a good body posture.
  5. Yoga including breathing techniques, which improve your concentration levels. Increased concentration can help you focus better and help finish your work faster.
  6. It is a low impact fitness activity, which means you don’t have to worry about body aches the next day at work.
  7. Yoga increases your energy level, and boosts your immune system through its breathing techniques.

 

The benefits of Yoga have made it popular in almost all countries across the globe. At THE ROOM Abu Dhabi, we have arranged a ‘Healing With Yoga’ workshop that is designed to help professionals, release their work stress and improve their posture. You can experience this Yoga session with our care team instructor Sahar Zaky on 17 June 2017.

6 Ways Yoga will improve your physical and mental health

Engaging in physical activities to gain fitness is a common and widely accepted way of leading a healthy life. However, the truest form of healthy living is about taking mental well-being into account. Very few forms of exercise actually give you mental peace and calmness required to tackle the stress of a busy life.  Yoga is one such form of exercise that improves your bodily functions while nurturing your well-being from the spiritual perspective.

Here’s how Yoga will benefit your body and brain in the best ways possible –

  1. Makes you more flexible –

This is one of the most obvious and popular benefits of Yoga. Yoga includes several asanas that help you loosen-up tight muscles. The stretching involved can be tolerated by your body and it slowly gets accustomed to the changes while increasing your range of motion, which means more flexibility.

  1. Builds your muscles –

Strong muscles do much more than just improving your look. Yoga asanas have a significant effect on your upper body strength. However, the poses are to be practiced in the right manner to give you the right amount of stress in building the desired muscle strength.

  1. Increases your blood flow –

Yoga, being a combination of exercise and relaxation, improves your blood circulation, especially in your hands and feet. Inverted poses like the Shirshasan (headstand) encourages the blood from the lower body parts to flow back to the heart.

  1. Boosts your health –

Yoga gets your heart rate into the aerobic range which lowers the risk of heart attack and also helps in relieving stress. Some Yoga exercises may not get your heart rate pumping but they do improve your cardiovascular conditioning.

  1. Brings you mental peace–

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Yoga is a trusted remedy for sadness. Consistently practicing Yoga leads to a significant increase in the serotonin levels.  Yoga takes your attention away from your worries and brings more positivity to your mind.

  1. Helps you focus better –

Once you attain calmness it helps you clear the clutter in your mind. This helps you isolate the primary matters and get rid of the stress. You can then resolve these matters with a positive frame of mind and focus better on your day-to-day activities.

Start Where You Are

Kat Owens

When it comes to trying something new, for many of us our instinct is to retreat. We go to a space of doubt rather than a space of curiosity. This is completely normal. We’re creatures of comfort! The unknown is a vulnerable place and it’s a lot easier to cozy up in our comfort zone. Starting a yoga practice can be especially intimidating. If you google the word ‘yoga’ you’re confronted (for the most part) with young, fit bodies bending in dizzying ways. It looks anything but inviting and calming. But in reality the practice of yoga is so much more than fancy postures; it is a practice of self-care and coming home to yourself. Simply put, yoga means union. Union between the body and the mind through the breath.
And the best part? It meets you where you are. It’s never too late to try. Maybe you’re healing from an injury. Maybe you have a meditation practice and are curious about the deeper philosophical aspects of yoga. Maybe you’re an avid and intense cyclist or runner. Maybe you’re super stressed out and tired most of the day. Regardless of your unique biography, if you can breathe you can begin.
The four-week Introduction to Yoga course at The Room is suitable for all levels and is a great way to start or continue your practice. Incorporating yoga poses, breath-work, meditation, and yoga philosophy, each session will build on the previous one so by the end you will have a solid yoga foundation.
So if you have any curiosity, don’t retreat—chase it and come join!
