Many fit people in the UK don’t think Yoga is for them as they may be fast and strong, but not flexible. However flexibility comes with a regular Fitness Yoga practise. Yoga for fitness in Worcester is an essential ingredient to improving an already accomplished sporting practise or fitness regime. Yoga 7 has been supporting professional football, rugby and squash players since since 2012 including Paralympic professionals.
If you are looking for an additional challenge then currently on Wednesday evenings there is an advanced class where we practise more demanding postures such as the head and hand stand. This is currently online so please do remember that essentially Yoga is an intuitive practise, so if it hurts, do not do it.
So many adults in the UK spend more than seven hours a day sitting or lying, and this typically increases with age to 10 hours or more. This includes watching TV, using a computer or other electronic device, reading, doing homework, travelling by car, bus or plane. Too many hours a day seated shortens the ligaments in the vertebral column, increases the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. Yoga postures help strengthen the the vertebral column and with a regular practise enable more flexibility. Yoga can even be done in the car whilst you are driving, within reason. At Yoga 7 for fitness, you will learn postures to practise pertinent to your current fitness regime, as Yoga encompasses the whole body.
Whether in an office, car or bike over the Malvern Hills or Worcester, sitting all day slows the metabolism, which affects the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar, blood pressure and break down body fat.
When the body is kept in a steady position for a long time, which happens during the breathing techniques in the beginning of each Yoga 7 class and the relaxation of 20 minutes at the end, the mind becomes free from physiological disturbances caused by physical activities of the body. Yoga is a thoroughly practical system, which can profoundly help people in both everyday living and in exploring life’s deeper aspects.
Yogic exercises are designed to maintain correct curvature of the spine, increase its flexibility by stretching both longitudinal ligaments. Yoga 7 fitness is not only a workout for the body but it is also a workout for the mind. Supporting alleviation of stress, assisting concentration and obtaining a sense of peace, Yoga adds an amazing string to your bow. Over a period of time with a regular Yoga practise you will become more in tune with your body. Practising Pranayama (breathing techniques) for cleansing the internal organs and balancing the left and right brain hemispheres your mental approach to your sport will be less distracted and therefore better able to help to prevent injury, avoiding interruptions to your fitness and sport.
