7 Reasons You Should Start Doing Yoga Immediately

7 Reasons You Should Start Doing Yoga Immediately | Active Lifestyles | Scoop.it

The must-read guide for anyone who's considered taking up yoga. Yoga is an ancient practice with origins stretching back thousands of years in India. It is designed to help achieve a more positive outlook on life and a focused, permanent sense of serenity and peace. The word ‘yoga’ itself means ‘union’ and ‘union with the divine’; however, many people have stripped away the spirituality and focus of yoga so that most think of it as a group of intensely athletic people putting their legs behind their heads and curling up into jaw-dropping positions.

 

While that certainly happens–I’ve actually done the leg behind the head thing a few times, but only after years of careful stretches and practice–yoga has so much more to offer than flexibility and the idea of garnering a strong body. People of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities can do yoga and adapt it to suit their individual tastes and needs.

How to Burn More Calories Through the Day (Without Even Noticing)

How to Burn More Calories Through the Day (Without Even Noticing) | Active Lifestyles | Scoop.it

It’s amazing to me how easy it is to forget to move. This year was the first time in about five years that I found myself gaining weight. It wasn’t a lot, just five pounds over six months or so, but it was strange for me since I didn’t think I was doing anything different.

 

I write and think about healthy living all the time, and I absolutely love the food I eat. I no longer crave sugar, and avoiding it isn’t hard. If anything I have eaten healthier than ever during this time, since I started working at home and control 100% of my meals. I’ve been eating the same or better quality food than I always have, and have even improved on my mindful eating techniques."

9 Yoga Poses You Can Do In Your Bed

9 Yoga Poses You Can Do In Your Bed | Active Lifestyles | Scoop.it
Good news for yogis and sleep-enthusiasts alike: You can take your practice to bed.

 

And there is good reason to do so: The ancient practice of yoga promotes a bounty of mind and body benefits, including things like strength and flexibility or stress relief and even a sunnier disposition.

 

"People underestimate the power of those few minutes before we get out of bed and rush into our day," says Vyda Bielkus, co-founder of Boston's Health Yoga Life. "In those moments, we can set up some clear intentions and choices."

6 Tips For Achieving All Your Fitness Goals

6 Tips For Achieving All Your Fitness Goals | Active Lifestyles | Scoop.it
I set the goal for myself two years ago, when I competed in New York City's 5th Avenue Mile, a 20-block sprint along Central Park, and clocked a solid 6:32. Then and there, I vowed I would be back on that course, speeding my way to a sub-6:30 mile.
