Studies show that regular hatha yoga classes can help to treat lower back pain and that yoga is just as healthy for your heart as a cycling class can be. Doing yoga even just once a week can result in:

  • Improved flexibility
  • Fewer injuries
  • Toning of all your muscles
goal Areas it targets

You already know that yoga tones muscles and burns calories, but depending on the type of yoga you're completing, the areas of your body that are targeted typically includes:

If you commit to practicing yoga once a week, you'll begin to see incredible health benefits within just a few weeks. However, if you practice several times a week, you will see longer-lasting benefits. As a general rule of thumb, a healthy practice of yoga is usually around 3 - 5 times a week, allowing for adequate rest.
