As summer comes closer, many of us are thinking about toning up and getting pool party ready! I thought it'd be the perfect time to do a series of workout posts. Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing with you my typical fitness routine! Hopefully I inspire you to try something new and get active...a stronger, healthier you is just a few steps away!
My all time favorite workout is yoga! Yoga is strengthens both the body and mind and helps my muscles stay long and lean. Yoga comes in many forms, but my favorite for calorie burning and muscle toning is ashtanga vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa means "to flow" and this type of yoga trains you to use your breath as a power source when moving from one pose to another. The room is slightly heated to help your muscles get warm and pliable. Below is a great beginner series you can try!
Many people think that yoga is simply a "rest day" activity, and while it is relaxing and helps to stretch sore muscles, I assure you that Vinyasa yoga is a full body strength workout as well! I take classes are Core Power Yoga, and really encourage everyone to try it. Classes are free for 1 week for new members!
My body and mind have changed so much since I began to practice yoga regularly. I'm stronger, more flexible, and overall feel less stressed. Do you love yoga? Do you want to try it? If you do let me know how it goes! Let's share our yoga journey.
