In honor of September being National Yoga Month, we’re sharing four of our favorite yoga posts from One Lombard.
3 Yoga Poses for Better Posture
We love yoga for all its physical and mental benefits. There’s nothing better than leaving a class feeling stretched, stronger, and maybe a little more sane! And another often overlooked benefit of a regular yoga practice is improved posture.
4 Ways Yoga Affects Your Mind and Body in Real Time
Have you ever entered a yoga class after a long day of work feeling distracted, anxious, and tight? However, during the 60-minute practice your worries melt away and you leave the session feeling focused, calm, and light? Yeah, us too—it’s crazy how the benefits of yoga can sometimes feel magical.
Stop, Drop, Stretch: Yoga Relief for Long Travel
Chances are that the next three months of your summer are filled with family vacations, road trips, destination weddings, and any other excuse to travel. Summer is the season for getaways, both big and small, and this usually requires some time on the road, in the air, or both. In addition to the usual lag we feel when catching red eyes or driving long distances, our muscles and joints also get tight from sitting for long periods of time.
Yoga for Athletes: The Best Poses for Your Sport
You don’t have to be a yogi to reap the benefits of a good yoga practice. In fact, many of the people who benefit most from yoga are actually more into other high-impact sports—and yoga becomes their way to prevent injury and perform better. With all the stretching, strengthening, and alignment work in yoga, it’s a fantastic way for athletes to address specific parts of the body that are prone to injury in their sport. Toss out that Tylenol, because yoga is one of the best preventative health measures around!
