How yoga helps you relax
At Bold, we offer a variety of live and on-demand yoga classes for our members. Yoga has an abundance of health benefits, and is also a wonderful way to relax and mediate stress levels. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a first-timer, our standing and seated yoga classes have something for everyone.
Yoga is composed of three core concepts: poses, breathing, and meditation. Research shows that yoga helps build the mind-body connection, with aspects of breath work, concentration, and physical movement working in unison. The mind-body connection in yoga can allow for energy flow through different systems within your body, which in turn leads to lower stress levels. So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or tense, taking a yoga class may make you feel more at ease.
Lower stress levels from yoga practice can have a domino effect on a series of other health benefits. Each component of yoga contributes to its overall ability to help improve sleep patterns and alleviate chronic pain. Yoga can also help lower your blood pressure and heart rate. Beyond helping with your physical health, yoga can promote better mental health too. Studies show that yoga can boost your mood and overall sense of well-being. In fact, it’s a great way to put emotional wellness into practice, which is an important aspect of active aging.
