Yoga is arguably the one tool we have that simultaneously improves strength, balance and flexibility, while helping to dial back negative self-talk and stress from deadlines, financial issues, relationship struggles and other problems.

Want to lose weight? One New Zealand study showed that women who followed a program of yoga and meditation lost weight and kept it off, while those who focused purely on exercise and nutrition had not. The ‘relaxed’ women were also generally happier and healthier at the end of the study.
Want more energy, better mood or sleep? Another recent study showed regular yoga practice resulted in “significant improvements in…sleep; reduced fatigue, depression, anxiety, stress, tension, and anger; and boosted general well-being, vitality, and function in physical, emotional, and social roles.”
We think that’s awesome, which is why we include yoga free with membership. We hope you’ll make this weight loss enhancing, mood and energy booster a regular part of your workout regimen.
