Hello Beauties!  It’s ” Work It Out Wednesday! ” 

7 Benefits to Yoga: There is alot more to Yogi than the average Bear ….

1. A happier look out on life – by doing an hour of ” asanas ” ( a sequence of sitting and balancing ) raised the level of GABA in the brain ( low levels of chemical GABA is linked to depression )

2. No more Aches and Pains! – A study was done of suffers who did two 90 minute sessions
of Yoga class for a week for 6 months and their sorness reduced by 56%! Posing improves posture and strengthens the back muscles.

3. Sleep Better! – Insomniacs fell asleep 15 minutes faster and slept an hour longer each night after 2 months of doing 45 minutes of YOGA poses before bed. Lights Out Insomno Divas!

4. Prwwlllll Hotter Sex! – You can step up your A Game in the bedroom O – my! by practicing  ” asanas ” no pun intended LoL – that pose of standing up and down that we were talking about earlier. The ” yoga – love ” connection if you will helps reduce anxiety, rev up arousal, by boosting libido, natural lubes, and the ability to achieve the Big Oh! experts say.

5. Body Confidence! – Women both of healthy weight who practice Yoga regularly are fabulous and satisfied with
their bodies compared to those who took aerobics. Yoga kind of forces you to have designated chill time, tune into your body how it feels and all of the amazing things that it can do!

6. Tone! – We are not talking about Tone – Loc neither! Dumbells are not the only way to sculpt. Yoga can also count as your strength training because you are using your body’s weight to move
and certain poses require that you life every pound of your body. Body Building poses include: asanas, Crow Crescent, Warrior III and plank.

Drum Roll please…….

7. Calmness – Melt away Stress! a study was done where divas who had hit the mat once a week for 2 years or more had 41% less tension! They experienced lower levels of cytokine ( a type of protein ) that can break a diva down by making her tired and moody compared to those who got their Yogi’s on 🙂

Be Fabulous!

    Hi There Flybyjuly,
    Neat Post, This is mainly to improve mind and health to lead our life effectively. Yoga is performed by one and all and in the entire globe. Doctors too advise to do Yoga whenever possible for relief from pains. Oflate it has been found useful in curing major diseases also. Great Saints and Gurus use to perform Yoga to acquire total meditation power and imparted knowledge to many of their disciples for further enhancement of shakti i.e. power. Yoga should be taught in all Schools and Colleges.
    I’ll be back to read more next time

      Thanks for the response Paul! I did not know all the history of Yoga thanks for sharing 🙂 I agree YOga should be taught in schools at grade level. I just read an article today of a 93 year old Yoga instructor powerful story she had done Yoga her entire life and started to teach and came back to it in her seventies so it’s never too late!
