Even if you only practice yoga for one hour each week, you will experience a number of benefits. However, doing yoga more often allows you experience more benefits. For most people, starting with two to three one hour to one and a half hour sessions is recommended in the beginning. However, everyone is different and you may find that you can handle more or less. As you become more accustomed to yoga, you will likely find yourself feeling compelled to spend more time practicing.
Yoga is more than just physical postures. While the physical aspect is a key component, yoga also teaches you to connect the movement of your body and fluctuations in your mind with the rhythm of your breath. By connecting the body, mind and breath, your attention is drawn inward and you become more self-aware. Yoga is a practice rather than a task to be completed, and it makes your mind more flexible as well as your body.
Yes! You don’t have to be flexible to do yoga. Practicing yoga will make you become more flexible just as taking piano lessons would make you able to play the piano. No matter your current degree of flexibility, taking yoga classes will give you improved agility along with increased strength, coordination and cardiovascular health.
