Yogata pick yourself up!

Tue 13 Apr
Report written by Paul Salman

Thanks for coming hope you enjoyed the session it’s good that you can do longer sessions to help focus but why not think about a short session now you know a little about simple postures and breathing.

Need a pick-me-up? If you feel a bit low it's tempting to go for a pint, order a pizza or treat yourself to some new shoes, but putting 15 minutes aside to practice yoga every day could transform your mood (and your health) in more ways than you could imagine.

Studies have shown that yoga can decrease the secretion of cortisol, the primary stress hormone, which in turn can improve your overall health. Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, it's easy to squeeze in just 15 minutes of yoga practice a day. Here are 16 benefits of yoga and why it will be worth it:

Stretching the limits

Tue 6 Apr
Report written by Paul Salman

A few good gym members joint for an online yoga session.

interesting quote from the author William Irvine.

Yoga has improved my balance and flexibility, reminded me of the importance of play, and made me acutely aware of how little control I have over the contents of my mind. But besides conferring these and other benefits to me, yoga has been a wonderful source of voluntary discomfort. While doing yoga, I twist myself into poses that are uncomfortable or that in some cases border on being painful. I will, for example, bend my legs until they are at the very edge of a cramp and then back off a bit. My yoga teacher, never talks about pain instead, she talks about poses giving rise to too much sensation. She has taught me how to breathe into the place that hurts. The technique undeniably works.

Interesting talk

The Vagus nerve is part of our parasympathetic nervous system, delivering information from all our major organs to the brain stem, and stimulating it can help us switch off our fight or flight response and calm us down. But listener Mags wants to know what science says about its impact on our general wellbeing? Marnie Chesterton learns some deep breathing techniques and discovers how the length of our exhale is closely linked to our heart rate, all of which is important for developing something called vagal tone. Cold water immersion also said to stimulate the Vagus, so Marnie braves a freezing shower, only to discover she needs to get her face wet but keep the rest of her body dry, to avoid what scientists called autonomic conflict, which is when your stress response and calming response are both switched on by the same event. Activating both arms of the nervous system in this way can lead to serious heart problems in some people. New research into the gut-brain axis has shown that the Vagus nerve may be responsible for transporting the so-called happy hormone serotonin, which could have important implications for the treatment of depression. And innovations in electrical stimulation of this nerve means implanted devices may soon be used to treat inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

Goodgym people bend over backwards to relax!

Tue 9 Mar
Report written by Paul Salman

A few goodgym people joined online yoga. Thanks for coming! Yoga talk

Backbends are invigorating and strengthening. They stretch the quads and hip flexors and help open up the shoulders and chest, an area where lots of us hold tension. ... By increasing mobility and awareness of the spine, backbends improve posture and can help to alleviate some kinds of back and neck pain. By releasing tension we get a relief from anxiety and stress that may build up over the day.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback

Do you need a bit more flexitime?

Tue 23 Feb
Report written by Paul Salman

A few GoodGym members came together for a yoga practice.

yoga talk...

If you’re ready to add yoga to your workout routine or deepen your yoga practice in general, you may wonder how much time you need to spend on your mat to experience the physical and mental benefits.

Well, it depends. Studies show that a regular yoga practice can improve muscle strength, promote good posture, increase balance, and help flexibility.

It can also boost your immune system and reduce your risk of symptoms related to chronic health conditions. Check out the newest yoga workouts in the Aaptiv app here.

But whether you practice once in a blue moon or every single day, here’s what a slew of experts suggest for both beginners and established yogis.
