Well, the gyms are starting to open back up…so, are you looking for the best fitness classes that will fit into your schedule? Maybe the ones that will be the safest and healthiest in this world of COVID-19?
There is so much to consider about yoga and the ability to fit this into your busy schedule, whether it is in the morning to get you started or at night to help you relax and relieve some stress. With the inclusion of both stretching and strength, there is often a great deal of meditation and healthy breathing included to help with spiritual and mental practices that help to put every part of the body and mind together.
Luckily, this is not a class that you need to attend at a gym or other location, many of these are available at home with videos, online apps, and other options. You can complete yoga workouts on your own whenever there is time available, even on your lunch break if you are like me and work from home. Sometimes those busy days keep you sitting in a desk chair for long hours, now proven to be harder on the body than smoking or the worst of any diet.
Now, the term “yoga” in the Western world often denotes a modern form of Hatha yoga, yoga as exercise, consisting largely of the postures called asanas. From my calculations, I was able to find about 35 forms of standard yoga that are taught today, even though there are many other fun options, such as goat yoga, that have been presented to the public over the years.
Given the many different fitness options and benefits that come from all of this, you have the chance to read about them and see which one seems the most interesting and would work best for your abilities. There are even options to building your capabilities, starting from a beginner level, and realizing quickly that you work yourself into a much healthier state, with improved strength and flexibility.
