3 Major Health Benefits of Practicing Yoga, Manhattan, New York

Moving Visions Dance in New York City offers a wide variety of fitness and dance classes for children and adults. They believe in a total body and mind approach to wellness, which is why they are so proud to offer Thai yoga classes.

Yoga has long been believed to be beneficial to physical and mental health, and lately more and more medical research is supporting the virtues of this ancient practice. Here are just a few ways incorporating a regular yoga practice in your life can help enhance your overall health:

  • Increased flexibility and range of motion: By using passive stretching techniques that focus on your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, lower back, upper back, neck, and chest, yoga allows you to increase your overall flexibility and range of motion. Lack of flexibility, especially as we age, is one of the leading causes of injury. By increasing your flexibility, you are actually protecting your muscles and joints from harm!
  • Peace of mind and heart health: High stress levels can negatively impact everything from autoimmune diseases to the way we experience physical pain. Yoga is a calming and meditative practice, and by learning to calm your mind, if only for an hour at a time, you learn to control your stress levels and actually lower your blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Increased strength and endurance: Holding poses in yoga class can help build strength and definition while increasing your endurance. Your upper body, core, and hamstrings can all benefit from practicing yoga, and since poses are typically held for several seconds at a time, the practice makes your body more able to handle endurance-based activities.

See for yourself what differences yoga training can make in your physical and emotional states. Visit the fitness studio at Moving Visions Dance online and sign up for a class, or give them a call at (212) 608-7681
