International Yoga Day - Yoga For Wellbeing

Todays is the start of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and its also the longest day of the year but another day that it already is, is International Yoga Day and this years theme is Yoga for Wellbeing.

Over the past year and a half, we have all suffered with one thing or another especially with mental health and Yoga is all about wellbeing from the core. Yoga incorporates postures or asanas as well as breath work, meditation, nutrition, and a whole new life experience. If you haven't tried it yet then give it a go as Yoga has so many benefits. Just by moving your body for even 3 minutes per day, you will start to feel a sense of calm in your mind and body because the serotonin levels, (calming hormone) is greater than your Cortisol levels (Stress hormone) which in turn makes you feel immediately better.

So how can yoga help you. Well by bringing a simple method of yoga and meditation into your everyday life you can help your body to:

- Relieve Stress by lowering the cortisol levels in your body

- Improve Breathing

- Ease Pain

- Improve Circulation

- Increase Strength

- Increase Endurance

- Lower your Heart Rate

- Lengthen Muscles

- Increase Flexibility

- Improve Concentration

- Increase Range of Motion

- Enhance Energy

- Detox the Body

- Strengthen the Abdomen

- Burn Fat

- Improve Posture

- Build Immune System

- Improve Balance

So as you can see yoga can help with so much more. Its not just about sitting there producing an 'OM' noise from your mouth. Its a whole different way of living and actually you do not really need to change much in your life to start to feel 100% better straight away. Just by moving your body and being guided by your own intuition, you can start to feel amazing really quickly. You will start to notice a huge difference within your self and people will start to comment on how well you are looking or they'll notice a huge difference in the way you carry yourself.
