Yoga can be a great way to boost your energy levels. The Health Yoga Life studio, located in Boston, Massachusetts, promotes the idea of accepting prana, or life force, into the body via breathing and movement through yoga. While practicing active poses, you are circulating the blood flow to the various parts of the body, essentially waking them up. By practicing energetic and invigorating yoga you can fight fatigue and even reverse the effects of long periods spent sitting, like many of us are forced to do when working at the office.Full body yoga offers a total body workout to get you looking and feeling great all over. By combining poses that work the lower back, core, glutes, arms and legs you can tone your body and increase your overall flexibility. This head to toe approach to your yoga practice is a fast and effective way of strengthening your muscles all over and achieving a full body workout with yoga.
