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. When you think of exercises that can help you relax, yoga is often the default. This is because yoga is all about remaining calm while maintaining some uncomfortable positions that slowly become more comfortable the longer you practice. Yoga is even a great way to help kids relax, as it can decrease stress and improve attention and behavior, according to a study by Wayne State University. And heck, if yoga can help even children find their calm, then you know that’s powerful stuff! Calming yoga is wonderfully beneficial in clearing the cobwebs from your mind and helping you to find your center. Receive & Unwind: Flow to Calm Down by Brett Larkin
