When it comes to working out, I really believe that finding something you connect with is the best way to get the most out of your practice. And a big part of that is feeling good about yourself and having the confidence to throw yourself into any class or session 100%. If you’re thinking about trying yoga this season, I’ve got an exclusive discount to share with you on one of my favourite brands.
I love Om Shanti Yoga gear; they have a great range of eco-friendly yoga clothing that’s all designed and handmade in the USA. This year they’ve collaborated with Roots Tribe Yoga, a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to bringing ‘yoga, mindfulness, and play’ to young people around the world. One of the things I love most about yoga is the positive impact it can have on all areas of your life, from increased strength and physical health to stress relief and improved confidence.
ROOTS TRIBE YOGA X OM SHANTI
Roots Tribe Yoga helps kids release stress, gain confidence, and learn empowering tools to positively change their lives and communities. They run an annual Let Girls Learn Yoga Camp in The Gambia, and this year, Om Shanti Clothing donated leggings to all the attendees. The girls loved them so much that they wore them every day!
“I will practice yoga after I leave camp, because it makes me strong and powerful.”
A camp attendee
“Om Shanti means peace for all human kind, peace for all living and non-living beings, peace for the universe, peace for each and every thing in the whole cosmic manifestation.”
FIVE BENEFITS OF YOGA
Not convinced? Here are five key benefits of yoga to help you feel motivated to give it a go…
Regular yoga practice helps increase core muscle strength and all-over tone. Not only does this help you to look great, it decreases everyday aches and pains and helps protect you from everyday falls and injuries.
Through regular practice you will notice yourself becoming much more flexible, which also goes a long way toward alleviating aches and pains and increasing overall strength. When you start you may not even be able to touch your toes… That will quickly change!
IMPROVED MENTAL HEALTH
Studies have found that consistent yoga practice can help fight depression and lead to a significant increase in serotonin levels and a decrease in the levels of monoamine oxidase and cortisol.
The meditative elements of yoga practice help us to decrease anxiety and improve emotional regulation.
Stand tall and proud! Regular yoga practice helps you to improve your posture dramatically, and with the added confidence and lowered stress and anxiety, you’ll be walking taller than ever…
