Is Yoga the Answer?

(February 27, 2013)

For years, the solution to all your weight loss woes and health dilemmas lay in aerobic exercise. Any type of exercise such as walking, running, swimming, or cycling that raised your heart rate and speeds up your breathing was considered the best way to lose weight, prevent heart disease, improve sleep, change your mood and even jazz up your sex life. While there is no denying that cardiovascular exercise can do all this and more – there was another alternative and that alternative was yoga.

The ancient practice of yoga is accompanied by a host of benefits. From a calm mind to a flexible body, yoga is often seen as a one-stop health fix. But is it enough? Many experts insist that it is. As long as you combine a regular (preferably daily) yoga routine with a healthy balanced diet, you will soon see the changes for the better. In fact recent research shows that people who practice yoga regularly can outperform those who follow a routine of aerobic exercise. No longer considered a 'hippy' choice, yoga deserves a more prominent place in the health and fitness world as it provides the best of both worlds – exercise and meditation. What more could you ask for?
