Benefits of Yoga

What is Yoga?

There are many aspects to the ancient Indian practice of yoga, but what we are concerned with here at Acton Fitness are the physical benefits of Hatha yoga. This is the practice of holding stretches and performing low impact exercise routines to strengthen the body. As with all different types of exercises, yoga provides a unique approach to gain results in specific areas of fitness which would be otherwise more difficult to obtain. If you are looking for another workout to add to your routine, Yoga brings a different type of intensity to the table, and allows for growth in specific areas that otherwise might be very difficult to attain.

The fitness benefits of yoga:

  • Strengthen core muscles
  • Greatly improve flexibility
  • Maintain joint integrity
  • Increase endurance
  • Build strong, lean muscle

Because of its low-impact and wide range of adaptability, yoga is good for all body-types, any fitness level, and any workout program as a whole. Whether you are working through an injury, or you need to add some flexibility to your strength, it is important to see how you could benefit from yoga.
