Need a pick-me-up? Something that will brighten up your day, make you feel happy and give you more energy? Just book into Yoga Express at the View on Friday lunch times 12.00 – 12.45pm! Just 45 minutes can help transform your mood (and your health) in more ways than you can imagine.
Improve flexibility, strength and posture.
Regular practice helps improve your posture, making your walk taller and sit up straighter at your desk. Aches and pains caused by incorrect body posture such as back pain can also be alleviated.
Yoga helps fuel the metabolic system and burn fat.
This is important as so much of our lifestyle is spent sitting.
Increase your energy.
Practice will awaken the main energy centres (chakras) in the body giving a much-needed boost in our busy lives.
Even a short practice, (lunch time session is ideal!) can calm your body and mind and reduce or prevent insomnia.
Yoga encourages you to slow down the breath, breathing deeply and fully from the pit of your stomach to the top of your lungs.
By practising yoga regularly, you increase your serotonin levels (the happiness hormone) thereby improving your mood.
Become more mindful.
You will feel calmer and more relaxed, increasing your self-confidence and self-acceptance.
Yoga is for everyone
– we seek to fuse an ancient tradition with a modern way of living.
All of the above add valuable years to your life, helping you to live longer. There’s definitely no excuse for not rolling out your mat and participating in some lunch-time Yoga Express!
