For those of us that hate the hustle and bustle of the gym, thankfully, there are more tranquil athletic alternatives. Aside from being able to be barefoot, yoga allows you to exercise both your mind and body.
Studies have shown that just like traditional cardio, getting in a namaste or two weekly can improve the body’s muscle strength and tone, while building up your body’s resistance against high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and excess body fat.
Yoga has also been proven to balance stress levels, and cause overall improvement in your sleeping habits, flexibility, body alignment, and your sex life.
