Five reasons to take up yoga

  • It feels good!

As we get older, we tend to get out of the habit of moving our bodies like we do as kids. Getting on the mat can show us that it feels good to move, and reminds us what our bodies can do. Think about how good it feels to stretch when you first wake up: take that feeling and multiply it by a thousand!

  • Yoga is time just for you

In the time you have on the mat, there's nobody trying to your attention. No kids needing help with homework, partners asking what's for dinner, or the boss reminding you of a deadline. Yoga will help you to quiet your mind and concentrate solely on your practice, removing all other distractions.

  • It helps you make friends

Yoga friends are the best friends! If you attend a regular class, chances are you see a lot of the same faces every time you go, so why not reach out and say hello. You might just make a friend for life!

  • Yoga can help relieve chronic pain

A Harvard Medical School study found that weekly yoga increased mobility among people with chronic back pain more than standard medical care. Teachers can adapt poses and sequences to suit all types of mobility, so accessibility issues caused by pain shouldn't be a barrier to practising.

  • Yoga helps you unplug

When you're spending time on the mat, it's time you're not sitting in front of a screen or scrolling through your phone. Regular breaks from technology and social media are good for our mental health, and using that time for yoga practice has a number of physical and mental benefits.

The OM Yoga Show is the perfect introduction to all the benefits of a regular yoga practice. All open classes are free to attend after entry and are suitable for all levels.
