Today is Day 6 of my HIIT the New Year Hard Workout Challenge. If you’ve been following the workouts so far you should be ready to stretch out and let your muscles recover a bit! Your body actually grows stronger on rest days. Stretching and flexibility are key components to keeping your body strong and healthy.
I love the glow I feel after a yoga workout. It’s a combination of calm and energy. Studies have shown that people who practice yoga tend to be more in tune with their body. They recognize their bodies signals such as hunger and sickness more accurately than those who don’t practice yoga.
When performing a yoga flow it’s important to focus on all aspects of the movement. Try to be present in the moment, and in tune with what you are experiencing. The practice of yoga can be very similar to meditation in that you learn to focus on what you are experiencing.
