I get it. If I hadn’t been practicing yoga since I was 16 years old then I would be in the same position.
You have too much to do and setting aside 20 minutes to do some yoga is, well, impossible.
It doesn’t matter how far reaching the benefits are, it simply does not fit into your hectic schedule. You are not alone. So if you decide to workout you want to make sure it is exactly that, a workout. Not every yoga class will make you feel like you’ve worked out.
I have felt this way as well. I would rather feel the immediate benefits of a high intensity workout or sweat out toxins through a cardio workout.
Until I learned something that changed the way I view yoga and its benefits.
It has to do with oxidative stress.
The type of stress that damages vital tissues to the body can be caused by this type of exercise. That is why yoga can be such a beneficial approach not only does it target the vital organs necessary for cleansing: liver, kidneys and colon. It also does not stress the body to a point where the body requires additional antioxidants to repair the damage.
You work hard and when you do yoga you shouldn’t have to work so much.
Not every yoga program will have this effect.
That is why you can utilize the yoga for cleansing program. The yoga sequences are simple and easy and they allow you to receive the benefits of yoga while simultaneously supporting a gentle and effective cleansing response. With over 13 sequences to choose from you won’t get bored and you can keep your momentum going long term.
You have been telling yourself that you want to cleanse. You have been saying to your friends that you want to do yoga. Now you can do both at once in only 20 minutes a day. This approach makes it as simple as possible for you to receive the benefits that each of these modalities provide.
