Prac­tise Yoga For Flex­i­bil­ity

Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - FITNESS -

Pic­tures of ad­vanced yo­gis with their legs be­hind their heads can be in­tim­i­dat­ing but in re­al­ity, yoga is one of the most age­less forms of ex­er­cise you can do to keep your body sup­ple and en­er­getic.

Yoga’s stress-bust­ing moves help re­duce in­flam­ma­tion in the body, while mov­ing through a range of poses will in­crease blood flow and oxy­gen to mus­cles, say re­searchers.

Over time, this will ease those nag­ging stiff spots that have ac­cu­mu­lated over the years. More specif­i­cally, all yoga classes in­clude pos­tures to open up the hips (the pi­geon pose), mid­dle back and ham­string stretches (down­ward dog), and spinal twists to flush out tox­ins from your ab­dom­i­nal or­gans.
