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.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.
