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.Practicing yoga first thing in the morning can be an incredibly effective way of increasing your energy levels throughout the day. Like other types of exercise, yoga reduces fatigue, and certain poses have been shown to leave you feeling particularly energized. A study by the University of Oxford found that yoga was able to help healthy people of varied ages feel increases in their energy levels. The study concluded that just a half hour of yoga stretches and breathing exercises were enough to dramatically improve both the mental and physical energy levels of the subjects.Yoga for Energy and Inspiration by Julie Montagu
