In July this year 2019, i decided to try yoga. I had been really stiff from lack of excercise, and really stressed and depressed. I downloaded the application http://Yoga Workout: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fivestars.dailyyoga.yogaworkout and i liked it. (This is not an ad. I just like to share when i try something and it works). Yoga gave me that sense of calm, because i was forced to focus on my breathing. That is what mindfulness is.
It also helped stretch my muscles and got me out of my lazy mood.
When i think of excercising, i usually think of all the obstacles like “im not dressed accordingly” “i dont want to sweat cz then id have to shower” but with yoga, you can be in your pajamas and do yoga without breaking a sweat.
Also, i used to think yoga was only for gymnists, because of all the extreme yoga challenges on Youtube. But actually, it can be quite simple.
Also, the more you practice it, the better you get at it, the more it increases your flexibility.
I wish i was more of a yogi. I wish i could tell you i practiced yoga daily. That is my goal, to get to the place where, as soon as i wake up, i sit down and do yoga, and then before i go to bed, yoga.
Until then, i will share on this blog the features available in the application i use.
There are several types of yoga routines you can try,and it even says the benefits of each one:
