Surf Girl - - Surfgirl Summer Travel Guide -

HERE NICO SUG­GESTS WHY YOU SHOULD IN­COR­PO­RATE YOGA INTO YOUR LIFE.

1.MEN­TAL BEN­E­FITS

Start­ing a yoga prac­tice means that you’ll be set­ting aside time for your­self to clear your mind and push out­side thoughts away for about an hour each day. This re­set and recharge will have tremen­dous ben­e­fits for your out­look on life

and per­sonal growth.

2. PHYS­I­CAL BEN­E­FITS

Yoga will keep you mo­bile. As well as stretch­ing your muscles yoga also builds

up strength, not only in your muscles, but your bones as well.

3. EN­ERGY

When you start a yoga prac­tice I highly en­cour­age you to in­cor­po­rate group classes as op­posed to only prac­tic­ing solo in your home. By go­ing to a stu­dio or gym you pick up on the en­ergy around you and meet oth­ers who may share

sim­i­lar goals.

4. LIFE­STYLE CHANGES

Of­ten when peo­ple be­gin a yoga prac­tice, they start to make life ad­just­ments as well. Your per­sonal yoga jour­ney will al­low for a lot of self dis­cov­ery, which will lead to changes in your daily life – whether they are big or small. This can be any­thing from be­com­ing more con­scious of your breath when in a stress­ful sit­u­a­tion, or to chang­ing up your diet to bet­ter serve your body.

5. AC­COM­PLISH­MENT

When you be­gin your yoga jour­ney the asanas will con­fuse you, the poses will get mixed up and you'll be look­ing around the room to fig­ure out what is go­ing on – and that's okay! This is all part of the pro­gres­sion and the won­der­ful thing about yoga is that you will con­stantly be learn­ing and striv­ing to mas­ter new poses and learn new ones. The sense of ac­com­plish­ment and pride that you will feel along the way will boost your self-es­teem and con­fi­dence and keep you

hooked to learn more.
