Many exercises are designed to burn fat and tone muscles, but there are also core stabilizing muscles that can greatly be enhanced by Yoga. Increased flexibility is also important in many everyday tasks, and Yoga can also help you achieve it.
Yoga helps you slow down rather than aim to raise your heart rate. […]

THE EIGHT LIMBS OF YOGA

When we think of yoga, we often picture crowded studios with students in stylish clothes twisting their bodies into difficult shapes. However, the true practice of yoga is much more than that. In fact, yoga is the Sanskrit word for union, the alignment of mind, body, and spirit. And, while the concept of yoga is simple, the practice consists of many facets.   The most well-known yoga text is The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, which provides a framework for the practice of yoga. In this book, Patanjali defines the Eight Limbs of Yoga, guidelines to help us live fuller, happier lives. These recommendations are particularly important for those who have struggled with addiction and whose internal compasses may need some assistance to rediscover balance as they strive to recover. That said, whether we are addressing addictive behaviors or simply seeking greater fulfillment, the Eight Limbs of Yoga are universal practices from which we can all benefit.
