5 WAYS YOGA WILL IMPROVE YOUR LIFE

1. IT KEEPS THE BLUES AWAY

Regular yoga practice helps protect against depression, found research from the Boston University School of Medicine. You will also improve your self awareness – another proven mood-booster.

2. IT BEATS BELLY BLOAT

The many yoga poses that involve twisting and forward bending put gentle pressure on your tummy and intestines, meaning blood flow to your bowels is increased. Voilà! Instant deflate.

3. IT CAN OUTSMART OSTEOPOROSIS

One in three women in the UK develop osteoporosis. Thankfully yoga helps to reduce the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Lower levels help to keep calcium in your bones.

4. IT TARGETS CELLULITE

Yes, really. All those fluid movements help to get your lymphatic system going fast, which will boost your body’s ability to flush out toxins and get your circulation going. Hey, every little helps!

5. IT FIGHTS OFF PAIN

A recent study published in the journal Headache showed that people who suffered from migraines had a significant decrease in their frequency and intensity after regularly practising yoga.

Lily is an experienced certified yoga teacher, she teaches the traditional, relaxing and invigorating Yoga as practiced in Asia for thousands of years; it is a little more holistic in nature, meaning, it covers not just the physical aspects of yogic practice (like asanas or poses, mudras or locks), but also the breathing, meditation, mindfulness and restorative techniques sometimes lacking in the modern practice. Yoga is part of who she is, from practicing yoga in the parks of China as a child, to graduating from YogiYoga(China) Institute in 2007, Lily has loved helping and inspiring people ever since. You can help balance your mind and body to give a sense of wholeness and great happiness.
