On a daily basis, consumers are subject to countless advertisements and news clips detailing what should and should not be eaten. And while new diets emerge every day, rarely is it the case that we are not asked to give something up. No-carb, smaller portions, low-fat, vegan, dairy-free, salt-free, raw, or here’s an all time favorite, the grapefruit diet. The truth of the matter is, with stress, obesity, and heart disease on the rise, we could all use some time to sit back and ponder our health habits. We could also use the time to correct bad habits by acting in ways that serve to improve our health. But isn’t it about time we pulled away from the restrictive “diet” approach and considered something new; an approach that adds to our lives to enhance our well-being, rather than constantly taking things away? At GREENandSAVE, we think so, and we think a great way to bring joy to your life is to add some Zen with yoga.

Yoga is a long-practiced spiritual and ascetic discipline of Hinduism and Buddhism throughout Southern Asia. There are many variations of yoga, but the majority includes breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures. Generally, yoga seeks to achieve health, relaxation, and heightened consciousness, but the positive advantages of yoga are endless.

Yoga’s benefits consist of increased energy, better strength and balance, toned muscles, enhanced flexibility, fit joints, ligaments, and tendons, stimulation of body organs, cleansing of toxins and waste products, improved posture, and increased lung capacity. Yoga has extensive psychological benefits as well including decreased stress, body awareness, improved cognitive functioning, and relaxation. Research has also shown yoga therapy as an effective treatment for certain medical conditions such as hypertension and insomnia. Gyms across the country are introducing an assortment of yoga classes to their members, and yoga studios are growing in prevalence and popularity. Now that you have no excuse not to add yoga to your regimen, let’s talk about what you need.

Step 1: Motivation. Motivation, more or less, refers to the benefits outweighing the costs, so hopefully we have you convinced by now. Just make sure to revisit the benefits every so often to keep your motivation going strong.

Step 2: Buy a yoga mat. A good yoga mat is a must. Here at GREENandSAVE, we are all about the environment. That’s why we suggest that if you go yoga, go green. Jamz Fitness offers a great yoga set by six-time world body building champ, Corey Everson.
