Most of us who practice yoga also work out and participate in other wellness activities. Whether you run, cycle, lift weights, or walk for fitness, yoga is an excellent complement. Sometimes, however, time is short and it’s not possible to get in both your workout routine and a full yoga class.
Enter fusion yoga and fitness classes, where you can experience the best of both worlds, all in one efficient, effective, and fun class.
1. Fusion yoga classes are efficient.
When you are pressed for time, but you don’t want to sacrifice either your fitness or your yoga routine, try one of these hybrid fusion yoga classes and stay on track with your life and your health. Fulfill all your needs with a class that will allow you to check off your fitness box, and balance it out with yoga to keep your muscles supple and your mind calm. Yoga Fusion classes will allow you to maintain or even improve your game, without diminishing quality. These classes provide the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga and build physical strength too.
2. Fusion yoga classes are effective.
Even though you are performing each activity for a shorter period of time, with the proper intensity, you aren’t missing out on any of the positive benefits. In fact, certain activities can actually make your yoga more impactful. For example, Yoga and Pilates are a perfect combination. Pilates focuses on using targeted resistance to strengthen your core and entire body and also focuses on breath and the mind body connection. By strengthening your center, your yoga practice improves, especially in balancing postures requiring core strength. Spinning gives you a heart-pumping cardio workout and yoga ensures you don’t lose flexibility. Barre emphasizes tiny controlled movements to create a dancer’s physique and yoga will help you stay open. Adding props to class also helps to improve your yoga practice. These combinations of fitness and well-being practice create a unified experience.
3. Fusion yoga classes are fun.
Sometimes you just want to mix up your daily routine. If you always practice traditional yoga, trying something new like Barre or Spin or Pilates may help you step out of your comfort zone and avoid falling into a rut. It’s also a great way to dip your toe into the waters of different workouts you’ve not tried before and ensure you still get your daily yoga.
