Event description

Description

When we practise yoga poses we involve the whole body, rather than trying to isolate specific muscles - like when using fixed gym machines. We recruit other muscle groups to act as stabilisers, as well as the muscles where the main action takes places. Yoga can be a great form of functional strength training. Meaning building strength in the whole body so that it can perform daily activities in the real world, not just lifting a certain amount of weight.

The Importance of Strength Building

  • It improves bone density, reducing our risk of osteoporosis

  • We naturally lose lean muscle mass as part of the aging process. Strength training can help to preserve it.

  • Stronger muscles help to stabilize joints. This can help to prevent injuries - especially important for those with hypermobile joints.

  • Strength training helps to improve resting metabolic rate

  • It has also been shown to have a possitive effect on our mental health, including reductions in anxiety, depression, and pain intensity; improved sleep and confidence, self-esteem, self-efficacy and resiliance.

Join us every Wednesday at 10:00AM. If you have any questions in regards to this or other yoga classes please give us a call at (910)483-8406.
