Who is ready to boost endorphins and create a strong, balanced body? This week, we’re focusing on how asana can help you grow physically strong. Sure, building muscle strength and endurance will help you feel better in your yoga clothes but being as strong as you can be is about how you feel more than how you look.
We’ve only got one body for this lifetime, and we have a duty to take care of it. Yoga will help you feel your best now and can play a major role in staying youthful and vital for years to come. Who doesn’t want to be that independent 80 year old out enjoying life fully, traveling, power walking, practicing yoga, spending time with friends and family? Longevity requires physical strength. Period.
Yoga Sutra 2:46 states the yoga posture should be a balance of effort and ease, or strength and softness. One of the primary benefits of building muscular strength and endurance is the ability to hold postures longer with proper muscular engagement. So, to maximize the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga, put in the physical work too. Yoga is one tool to keep you centered, balanced, mentally alert, and strong.
When we practice more vigorous styles of yoga and yoga/fitness fusions, we can quiet our minds and activate our digestive, circulatory, lymphatic, and endocrine systems. It’s a great way to shift from a sedentary period in our lives and reawaken our inner fire. By aligning ourselves with nature’s change in seasons, we boost our efforts and feel more connected with the world around us.
Whether you’re moving into Spring or into Autumn (Southern Hemisphere peeps, we see you!), it’s an excellent time to emphasize the physical aspect of yoga. It’s the perfect time to join YogaDownload on a two-week FREE Challenge designed to help you get strong. You’ll feel empowered, energetic, and lighter.
