Relaxation - Endurance - Stress Management - FlexibilityWhat
do all these things have in common? First, they are all things we need
to work on improving in our busy American lifestyles. Getting better at
these areas has long been advocated by health experts as a way to
increase our quality of life, reduce the risk of injury or illness, and
even to live longer!Second, these are all benefits of working out
with Yoga! Hatha yoga - the physical yoga postures or "asanas" that
most of us associate with yoga exercise - is a great way to build
muscle, increase the range of motion in our joints, and create an
opportunity for calm, balance and relaxation in our daily schedules. Now
before you get nervous that I'm going to go all "transcendental" on
you, don't worry! Although yoga traditionally does include a lot of
spiritual, meditative and holistic practices, you can get many of the
benefits of a yoga lifestyle by just incorporating a little yoga fitness
workout routine into your weekly schedule. Whether you can do
60-minutes 3x per week, or squeeze in some Sun Salutations for 15
minutes every morning - even a moderate increase in your activity level
through the incorporation of yoga practices can help.One of the
biggest objections many people have about working out with yoga is over
the fear that they don't have time for exercise. Working out at home
with a yoga fitness DVD can be a great solution to the problem.I
know your schedule already feels jam-packed and you're worried you won't
have time for yoga. As a full-time-mom (all parents are full-time in my
opinion - you never stop worrying about your kids!) and a
business-owner, I find that there are never enough hours in the day to
do everything I want to. However, it's important to prioritize your
health and make time for replenishing your body and spirit on a daily
basis. Exercise is a great way to do that. When you work out at home
with a yoga fitness DVD, you can squeeze in your exercise whenever you
have time. Before dawn when the house is quiet, when the kids are
napping or the family's watching TV downstairs, or even as a family
activity that encourages everyone in the household to be active and
share time together.Another concern that many people have about
yoga exercise is that it's going to be expensive. Yoga has certainly
enjoyed a period of "trendiness" lately and with yoga classes sprouting
up all over the country at elite gyms and studios, it's easy to see how
yoga has gotten the reputation for being expensive. However, remember
that yoga was developed by ascetics in some of the poorest areas of the
world. You have more than they do in terms of material possessions - if
they can do it, you can do. Although you don't "need" anything to
practice yoga, and you can even learn it for free with some workout
videos from the library or picture books that show you step-by-step what
to do, I recommend that you start with two essentials: A yoga mat to
enhance your comfort and safety while doing the poses, and a good
instructional yoga video to lead you through a workout or two that you
can follow and enjoy over and over again.For the price of a class
or two at the local yoga studio, you can get everything you need to
workout at home.I encourage you to look into yoga exercise as a
total body workout, or a supplement to your existing exercise routine.

A simple yoga fitness DVD
is a great way to work out in the privacy of your own home on your
schedule. Just pop in the video and get out your eco friendly
yoga mat and let the zen begin!
