If you really wish to get better results your daily fitness routine, you should really consider adding Yoga asanas and pranayama to your workout sessions. Contrary to traditional weight building exercises, in Yoga your body provides the resistance. Even if you don’t produce bulked up muscles, you will definitely increase your muscle strength. Further, some balancing postures call for a lot of muscle control to prevent you from falling over. This helps build up and strengthen the muscles. Yoga goes even far beyond aerobics and weight training; it can benefit you both physically and mentally.

Besides all other benefits, Yoga can help you improve muscle fitness and make you actually feel and be stronger. Whether or not you decide to use it as your primary means of strength training or supplement your other exercises, Yoga definitely helps your muscles grow fit, balanced, and strong. As a matter of fact, many asanas are performed very slowly.

Or you are required to retain a specific pose for several breaths. Those who have experienced it, support the theory that it is far more challenging to the muscles to retain a pose or do it slowly than to let momentum move you through an action.

Further, in weight training, you isolate specific muscles as you perform an exercise. This leads to short, tightened muscles. On the other hand, the muscles you develop in Yoga training are more likely to be elongated; since as you are strengthening them, you are simultaneously lengthening them, as well. Above all, Yoga practise helps realign the muscles so that they are better balanced. You truly work your whole body when you practice Yoga. This is because in Yoga you don’t focus on isolated muscles, but actively recruit smaller muscle groups too.

Finally, you are less likely to get injured practising Yoga, since you are not overworking any specific muscle group.
