Does Yoga help with stress?

Yoga is amazing for stress because it is just you, your body and the mat. This means that you can forget about your worries and concentrate on how you are feeling and how you are moving. It is fantastic for reducing anxiety and for coping with depression or low mood too.

Why is Yoga good for you?

Yoga is good for you because it improves both your mental and physical health. It teaches you to listen to your body whilst strengthening your core. It encourages breathing techniques and meditation, which are great for stress reduction and bringing your body to balance.

Is Yoga better than the gym?

Both yoga and working out improve your fitness and it is possible to do both of them at home. The most important thing is that you are active regularly so it is more important to find something that you like so that it is sustainable.  Many people find the combination of both fitness training and yoga effective.

Which type of Yoga is best?

All types of yoga are beneficial so it is important for you to find one that you like. As time goes on, you might start exploring different kinds of yoga. Vinyasa flow and ashtanga are more physically active whilst yoga nidra and yin yoga are more restorative.

Do I need a mat for Yoga at home?

It helps to have your own mat as this cultivates the practice of rolling your own mat out and showing up. Your mat is the space you have created to make time for you and to take care of yourself, it is the platform for your own sweat and tears: a place where you can just be you.

Which Yoga style is best for me?

If you are new to yoga, I would recommend starting with a hatha yoga class or a vinyasa flow for beginners. From here, you can try different types and over time you will find classes that suit you.

What time of day is best to do Yoga?

First thing in the morning or the evening is a great time for a yoga practice. It is a great way to start the day and then you can concentrate on the day ahead. It is also a really nice way to switch off from your working day too so there is definitely benefit to both! Try both and see which you prefer.

How many times a week should I practice Yoga?

You will feel more benefit from yoga if you practice at home or go to yoga classes two or more times per week. Some people feel better doing a daily practice if your lifestyle allows the time.
