Julie from Hot Asana Yoga here in Colorado Springs and Erica join the show for a discussion on yoga.
Yoga has many great ways to help improve your body and not just in the way of making you strong and flexible, it also helps many people relax and become less stressed. We will get into the yoga benefits but first it would be good to know where yoga comes from and its original purpose.
The word yoga translates to “union” or “to unite.” I think that is very fitting for the practice of yoga, it’s not just about sweating to lose weight for that beach body but yoga, to me, is a practice of doing something good for yourself, your whole self, mind and body.
We at Under Ten Fitness really like yoga for its many benefits and think that everyone should practice yoga even if only a few times a month or year. Yoga is one of the best ways to keep your body moving and feeling good from stretching to strength yoga covers it all.
In this episode I talk with Julie and Erica about how yoga takes care of the whole body and contrary to my original belief yoga can be really challenging. I first tried yoga a few years ago and sweat more than I had every sweat during any workout, and it wasn’t even “hot” yoga.
Yoga has firmly made its place in the fitness world and has been around for thousands of years. Yoga was one of the first forms of organized exercise and should be a consideration for anyone’s weekend fitness program.
We want to thank Julie and Erica for taking the time to talk about their joy and passion for yoga and if you would like to know more about them of the studio please check out Hot Asana’s website.
