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.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.Move for Stress Relief by Julie Montagu
