Happy NU Year!
The beginning of a New Year is a great opportunity to make a fresh start. Maybe you want to take up a new hobby, save more money or drop a bad habit. At NU yoga, we believe there’s no better way to kick off the year by incorporating more self-care into your plans. After all, you’ll need your health to make 2018 your best year yet!
Do something that leaves a positive impact physically, mentally and emotionally like yoga. Here’s how it can keep you on your game in 2018.
One of the biggest resolutions that people make each year is to get into better shape. Looking to improve your strength? The physical exertion of a power yoga class, for example, is a great way to tone your glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves, as well as increase your physical stamina. Sweat it out in a hot yoga class to burn off calories.
If your plan is to step into the year with new confidence, you’re going to need the posture to go with it. Yoga helps to strengthen the muscles around the spine and improve the core, which keeps you upright.
Internally, clear house by trying a yoga detox. Your lymph, blood, liver, kidneys and colon play a major role in your body’s natural detoxifying functions. Yoga can give them a much-needed boost by increasing circulation, compressing and twisting internal organs and encouraging relaxation.
The dark days of winter are upon us and this can certainly affect our mental clarity and overall motivation. Rev your mental engine in a fast paced vinyasa class. The mental challenge of connecting your breath to movement will improve your focus and body awareness, in addition to clearing your mind.
Is it just us, or did 2017 seem to fly by in no time? It’s easy to get caught up in the fast pace of our daily routine. The meditative state of most yoga classes is a great way to relieve stress, as well as lower blood pressure and a high heart rate. Adding a restorative yoga class to your daily or weekly routine can put you in the right frame of mind to tackle any curveballs that come your way in the New Year.
The time that you spend in a yoga class is your opportunity to disconnect from the world and do something that’s just for you. Take the leap and incorporate yoga into your 2018 wellness routine.
