Benefits Beyond The Mat

Yoga is both a mind and body practice that people have been doing for centuries. There are various types of yoga whether you're a beginner or a yoga regular. Regularly practicing yoga can make you more flexible, help tone your muscles, promote weight loss, and improve balance and endurance. Besides being an excellent workout, yoga has many benefits beyond the mat! 

  1. Yoga can help you to be present - it makes you mindful of your surroundings, thoughts, and emotions that are going through your head at that moment. 
  2. May help you get a good night's sleep - gentle yoga before bed can be beneficial before sleep because of the relaxation associated with it. 
  3. Reduce your stress hormones - in a three month study, women had significantly lower cortisol levels. 

Yoga is a great exercise that can be done at any ability level! UNH offers yoga classes right on campus in the Hamel Recreation CenterGrab a friend and try out different yoga classes for a new and exciting workout routine!
