Muscle Build Day 2: Yoga

Day 2 of my new Muscle build re-boot plan calls for a 60 minute yoga session. If you have hot yoga in your area, I highly recommend it. I’ve been doing hot yoga for about 3 years, and absolutely love it.

Samara_dec09_0646Whether you enjoy the heated/humidified rooms of hot power (or vinyasa) yoga, or simply enjoy a classic yoga class at your local gym or studio, yoga is an excellent addition to your workout regime.

Plenty of research exists to support the notions that yoga can help with anxiety, depression, arthritis, asthma, back/neck pain, blood pressure, immune disorders, and a host of other conditions and diseases.

From a pure fitness perspective, yoga…

  • Improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina

  • Reduces stress and tension

  • Improves balance and coordination

  • Lowers fat

If you’re not a member of a studio or gym that offers yoga, you can also try this at home. Here are a few great DVD’s for home based yoga:

So no matter how you do it – just do yoga!
