Yoga

Even people who we perceive to be in excellent shape often struggle with unexplained pains, soreness, and tightness throughout their bodies. Being lean or having prominent muscles doesn’t necessarily mean that your joints and muscle fibers are in optimal condition.

This is why active stretching is one of the essential components in maintaining excellent physical health. Few exercises give you the combination of endurance, flexibility, and relaxation that you can achieve with yoga, and at Pillar2Wellness, we can help you unlock all the benefits of this practice.

What is Yoga? 

Yoga means many different things to many people – in truth, yoga constitutes a group of disciplines and practices that aim to merge spirituality, physical improvement, and mental strength to balance body and mind. The earliest traces of the practice are dated as far back as 5,000 years ago!

Over the centuries and through exposure to different cultures, yoga has grown and changed. Today there are many versions of yoga with different variations and movements that can focus on cardiovascular health, muscle development, or simply peace and relaxation.  

How Does Yoga Work? 

Yoga can take many forms, but they all combine a series of passive and active stretches in the form of poses. As you work through the poses while breathing deeply and paying close attention to your body positions, you can enhance your flexibility, strength, and endurance. Ultimately, yoga is about finding balance through exertion and relaxation.
