Fitting exercise into your life is crucial. Finding time for fitness has been proven to reduce illness and boost well-being. But not all exercise is the same. Weight training, swimming, running, or cycling offer known cardiovascular and physical benefits. But, as stress takes over more space in our modern lives, the benefits of mind body exercises like yoga, Pilates, Yogalates, and Yin Yoga can’t be underestimated. Adding a few of these in your weekly or monthly rotation will only help by promoting inner mental focus, concentrating on muscular movements, synchronizing these movements with breathing patterns, and focusing on form and alignment of the body.
