Benefits of Kansas City Yoga

There are so many benefits that can be found in Kansas City Yoga! As it continues to gain popularity, it is important to find a fitness club that offers yoga on a regular basis. At The Athletic Club you can find a yoga class every day of the week! We offer different  yoga classes such as Beginning Yoga and Yoga Sculpt. Yoga has multiple benefits for health, fitness, and relaxation.

A Few of the Benefits of Kansas City Yoga:

  • Increased flexibility- As you continue to attend classes you will see a gradual shift in your flexibility. Yoga stretches your muscles and connective tissues, which can allow you to have better posture and fewer pains.
  • Increased muscle strength- As you are increasing your flexibility, you also improve muscle strength which can protect you from falls as you get older and prevent conditions such back pain.
  • Boosts your immunity and drains your lymphs- As you change positions and move around, your organs also move around, which causes drainage of lymphs. This can help to fight infection and rid the body of waste.
  • Improves your mood- In many cases yoga can increase happiness, improve your focus, and relax your system.
  • Helps you breathe better- Yoga can teach you how to breathe better using bigger and fewer breaths.
  • Increased Blood Flow- Yoga can help circulation and blood flow through the use of different poses and exercises.
  • Improved Self Esteem– As you practice yoga, you may begin to gain confidence through your growth, both physically and mentally.
  • Can lead to weight loss- Yoga can help with weight loss in multiple ways including lowering stress levels, lowering blood sugar, and encouraging a healthier lifestyle.
