Yoga is my ideal way of exercising.

It is generally known that there are three types of exercise.

The first kind, muscle work out, enhances your strength in muscles. The second, cardio work out, paces your heart beat and prevents the body from various kinds of diseases. Lastly, flexibility workout, as in yoga, is used to flex our body muscles to tone down the stressful areas around our body. Yoga may seem the easiest to do, but it is actually the most effective exercise of the three. Yoga comes in many ways ranging from different cultures. It mainly consists of stretching and twisting the body to pull and relax the body. It may sand painful and be extremely painful for beginners, but you can see a drastic effect and improvement to your body after doing yoga. What was thought to be stiff, is now relaxed and flexible. Yoga is also not only about flexibility but also a good work out for the muscles as well , After all, all exercise is hard work. Yoga classes can be found in studios where they have proffessionals as mentors, An appropriate set of clothing is also advisable. Ones that are stretchy and fit are ideal for yoga.

Not everyone likes yoga, because it is considered to be fixing and quite boring, but Yoga has a spiritual advantage when it comes to being calm and doing meditation. Apart from doing extreme poses that I have never imagined myself doing, I get in touch with myself, spiritually, I became calm and relaxed, and I get transported into a land of my own thoughts and imagination, It is the only time where I feel I can explore my thoughts and discover who I am, Living in a developed world, where competition and stress affect my body, I learn to make peace with myself and take different approaches when interacting with other people. Yoga transforms me into a better person physically and mentally. What can be better than that?
