What kind of discipline is Yoga? how does it improve your health and your physical condition?
Answer by pianogal
I don’t do any gym programs, just yoga and I am much stronger and leaner than I used to be. You can get a really good workout from a yoga program, if you approach it right. First, start with classes that will teach you the poses and proper alignment. These classes are usually called Hatha Yoga. You’ll need to improve your balance and flexibility a bit before moving on. After a couple of months, move to a more challenging level. Try Vinyasa yoga, ashtanga yoga, or kundilini yoga. All three are more intense, move faster, and keep your heart rate up in the fat-burning zone. I think you’ll love yoga – plus at the end of each class there is a relaxation/meditation period that is great for destressing. I totally fell in love after the first class. Have fun!
