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.

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.

It was a bit of a stretch!

Tue 16 Feb
Report written by Paul Salman

A few GoodGym members came online to do some yoga.

yoga talk....

Let’s be honest: Running more isn’t always the best thing we can do for our bodies. As we build mileage, our hamstrings and calf muscles can grow taut while we ignore our core and other muscles. We start to believe more is always more, ignoring our body’s subtle (and not-so-subtle) complaints.

Lucky for us, yoga is a perfect complement to running. Everything that running tightens, yoga stretches. But yoga offers much more than just stretching.

“It’s about balance,” yoga instructor Sage Rountree

Rountree, an ultramarathoner, triathlete, and coach, as well as a yoga instructor, literally wrote the book on how yoga can help runners. Rountree writes about how yoga can help you improve your form, power and strength.

“If done well, yoga lets you see where the imbalances are in your body, and balance is key to preventing injuries,” she says. read more here https://www.fleetfeet.com/blog/how-yoga-for-runners-helps-you-find-balance-and-run-better

Yoganna improve your mind as well as your body.

Studies have shown that activities that require you to think while moving, like Tai Chi, yoga, aerobics, Zumba, and choreographed dancing, are going to be the most beneficial for your brain. Another way is when you run or cycle look for new routes over varied terrain.

Thanks for coming, being active and doing good.
