Not convinced? Check out our top three reasons to love yoga!

Focus
Exercise is a great way to clear your mind and yoga in particular focuses on being in the moment and forgetting about any worries you may have. Power poses like the Warrior can help you feel more confident and self-assured, ready to take on the day. The concentration skills you develop through yoga can also help you work through your to-do list more efficiently.

Smile
Deep breathing practised during yoga is thought to lower stress hormones, blood pressure and heart rate, leaving you to embrace the endorphins (happy hormones). Recalling happy memories during meditation (a core part of yoga) is sure to put a smile on your face for the rest of the day.

Relax
Yoga is a great way to stretch your muscles and improve your flexibility, relieving tension and helping you respond to daily stresses in more relaxed way. If you’re feeling tense after a long day, try out some simple stretches in a warm, quiet environment to promote a calm and relaxed attitude. It can also help you get a peaceful nights sleep.

So why not give yoga a try and let us know how you get on!
