Ten Reasons to Try Sunrise Yoga in the Park

  1. Stress Reduction.Slow, deep yogic breathing encourages reduction of both physical and mental tension allowing us to unwind after a busy week and prepare for the next. Being outside in the fresh air listening to birdsong, among the trees, also helps to reduce stress levels, which is vital for a healthy mind and body.
  2. Increase your flexibility. Yoga helps us to stretch and elongate muscles throughout our bodies. The more elastic your muscles are, the less prone you are to injury which is particularly helpful as much of our work is now sedentary. 
  3. Improve your balance. Almost everything we do, from walking, to shopping for groceries to playing with our kids all require varying levels of physical balance. Practicing the various poses improves your balance and encourages freer every day, functional movement – vital for longevity and health. Yoga also benefits us in the other meaning of balance, yoga’s entire function is to balance body and mind to achieve our best mental and physical health.
  4. Increase your strength.Many people either have strength or flexibility, however too much of either doesn’t help with our functional movement. Yoga is an excellent way to build strength using your own body weight whilst ensuring you also stay flexible. 
  5. Build your stamina.Yoga is a great form of exercise for all levels, ages, and abilities. Whilst all exercise will build stamina, yoga builds it gently – every practice increases stamina, and each pose can be adapted with varying degrees of difficulty allowing you to grow into your practice over time. 
  6. Improve your digestion.Yoga’s twists and bends gently massage your internal organs and this helps to detoxify your system which is great for overall health and can also assist with weight loss. Many poses can also help relieve bloating and stimulate the digestive system.
  7. Gives you enhanced focus.The concentration you develop in yoga translates to other areas of your life – which is excellent to practise on a Sunday in the park before a hectic Monday!
  8. Improve your posture.Yoga helps you walk taller and develop stronger core muscles. And, when you have body awareness and a strong core you can’t help but have good posture.
  9. Improve your circulation. Again, this is vital for health as poor circulation can lead to fluid retention, acne breakouts, issues with concentration and more! 
  10. Improve your cardiovascular fitness.Yoga’s practice of controlled breathing teaches your body to use oxygen more efficiently and helps to improve your overall level of cardiovascular fitness.

So – if you want to improve your functional fitness in a beautiful outdoor setting, for free – head to Sunrise Yoga in the Park. You’ll find all the details you need on our Facebook page. To find out more about Dionne and The Yoga Shed click here or visit www.yogashed.com.au.
