The Great Effects Power Yoga Can Have on Your Body

List: Posted: 12/10/10

The term "yoga" is intimidating enough. Oftentimes, people just assume yoga involves a lot of flexibility, standing on one's head, and contorting the body to all sorts of strange positions. While it does require a bit of flexibility and there are different positions involved, there is so much more to it than that! It can benefit the human body on a physical scale, as well as a mental one.

Gyms all over the country are offering a more intense form of the exercise known as power yoga. While the standard exercises are beneficial to the body and spirit, power yoga is true to its name. It is intensely powerful, and puts to work every muscle in your body.

For the body, power yoga has all sorts of great benefits. It increases flexibility and strength. It also tones the body through the use of various positions, and can improve one’s posture. In addition to these outside effects, one session can improve blood circulation, and provides complete muscle relaxation to the practitioner. 

Power yoga is also good for the mental state. It allows practitioners to have a positive stress release, away from their normal surroundings. It gives its followers a chance to meditate on the day's events, promoting relaxation. Additionally, yoga sessions can help a person's concentration, and can increase memory and focus. 

Heal the body from the inside out, and give power yoga a try! It's a great physical workout, as well as a great way to relax the mind and spirit.
