Good Health and Vitality are just a breath away

Regular exercise, a good diet and a good night’s sleep are essential to giving yourself the wherewithal to do all the great things that you want to do. Unfortunately when life gets particularly busy, exercise, good food and good sleep are usually the first things to go out of the window.

Your body is in a constant state of change. Much like how our moods change, our energy levels and productivity can change too. It’s important to remember that good health and vitality require a steady upkeep of good rest, good food and good exercise.

3 ways that hot yoga will help promote your vitality

Work your stresses away

Hot yoga helps keep you on an even keel by helping relieve stress. At the physical level, Yogafurie Hot Yoga classes release tightness and strain in muscles and joints.

Yoga can be incredibly therapeutic for mental or physical tiredness. On a mental level, your worries of the day melt away through focusing on your breath. Focused breathing techniques bring quiet and calm to the brain and central nervous system.

Recharge your batteries

Reinvigorate yourself so that you have the energy to spend with your loved ones. By helping to calm your mind and work away the stresses of the day, a lot of students notice an immediate lift in their mood and general energy levels. By regularly practicing yoga, you’ll notice a lift in your energy levels.

Sharper mental focus

Help to keep your mental focus sharp by making time for hot yoga. Yoga in general is a great way to improve concentration, just by its nature. Working on the postures and breathing exercises can help boost your power to focus.

Yogafurie classes always bring you back to focusing on moving with your breath. By bringing your focus back on to your breath with each pose, you also strengthen your ability to focus.

Making time for yourself each week

To help you work hard on everything else in your life, it’s worth making time each week to work on yourself. By spending some time each week on some ‘me time’, you can help yourself to keep on an even keel, have plenty of energy and maintain your focus.

Too busy to practice?

Practice reduces stress by promoting good breath and great exercise. Good breath stimulates your body to relax; great exercise helps your mind relax because you feel stronger and leaner. And when you relax, the people you love to be with can relax too.

Stuggling with an old injury? Tired of living with discomfort?

Injuries can be quite frustrating, especially when they hinder you from doing all the great things that you like to do. Sinead’s written a blog post about how hot yoga has helped her overcome injuries.
