Fast-paced yoga offers a satisfying workout because of the strong demands it places on the body. While you may be dripping with sweat and begging for mercy, you will find that you’re thrilled with the results. If you think yoga isn’t a “real workout” because it’s of its slow pace and calm nature, fast-paced yoga will make you eat your words. This energetic yoga style has you constantly switching from one pose to the next, and it is expressly practiced daily – that’s right, even if you’re still sore from the previous day’s workout. Not only can challenging yoga be great for the body, but it can also work wonders on the mind. There’s no greater feeling than finally being able to hold yourself up in the crane pose, or knowing that you’ve improved your flexibility enough to execute frog pose with your legs flat against the ground. There’s no question that you’re in the best shape of your life when you can remain in poses like these for an extended period of time. Perfecting these poses can take months or even years, but the challenge pays off in the end.Yoga Dance Party by Emilie Perz
