Stuck at Home ? Why should you try Yoga?

Be honest: how seriously are you working on your flexibility?

When thinking of improving your fitness, most of us think of huffing and puffing away at the gym. But weights are not the only way to work out. Yoga gives you all that a gym can, but in a peaceful, safe and more holistic way. It combines aspects of cardio, functional and strength training all in one. What more could you ask for? The best part about this workout is that it can be done at your own pace, in your own home.

Hopefully, you’re not skipping the warmups and cooldowns during your normally scheduled workouts, where you’ll get some of that work. But even better is to add some yoga to your routine.

It’s not just stretching — it’s real strength and endurance building in beneficial body positions that will help you feel better on the field, improve your balance, and more.

There is a ton of great free yoga on YouTube that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

If you need, grab a cheap yoga mat and get into a three-times-a-week routine. I promise you’ll be glad you did. It’s an important part of anyone’s workout regimen — you’ll start to notice how often warm-ups and “dynamic stretching” are just borrowing from yoga.
