canstockphoto18331442We’ve talked about being an exercising beauty before. Do yourself a favor and take some time today to learn the benefits of Yoga.  Afterwards, treat yourself by viewing and using  the free videos available at DoYogaWithMe.com by clicking the link at the end of this post.

How many of us are looking for ways to de-stress and to stress less?  Once again I want to call your attention to the benefits of using Yoga as an exercise alternative. It can be easy on your body, and moreover, ease your mind.  What a winning combination! Don’t you think so too?  Here’s what I found out about some of the benefits:

 Researchers at Simmons College in Boston found that Hatha and relaxation yoga can help with controlling weight, lowering blood pressure, and improving mood. Yoga can also ease hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms in healthy women as well as in breast cancer survivors.

Men and women of all shapes, sizes, and abilities can do yoga and benefit from the practice.

 There are also yoga programs that are tailored to help ease the symptoms of arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s. Some VA hospitals even offer yoga to help patients recovering from strokes, brain injuries, and other illnesses.

“Yoga will make you feel good. Yoga, at its root, is about bringing more awareness to action and to movement. The more you get in your body, the more connected you are to the world.” via Yoga for Beginners: When You’re Overweight, Paralyzed, on Chemotherapy, or Other Situations.

DoYogaWithMe.com is a free, constantly expanding resource of online yoga videos created by a passionate group of experienced instructors. The yoga videos include classes, poses, breathing techniques and anatomy videos.via About Us | DoYogaWithMe.com.
