Practice Yoga for Improved Focus and Health

Yoga is a low impact workout that links breath with movement for physical, emotional and spiritual benefits. While yoga is rooted in Hindu and other Eastern traditions, it has evolved over thousands of years to reflect a variety of styles and disciplines. The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root “yuj”, which means to yoke the spirit and physical body together. At Yoga Happiness Studio in Columbus, we modify all yoga classes for various bodies, ages and athletic abilities.

According to yogic tradition, there are six “branches” of yoga. Westerners are most familiar with hatha yoga, which is the yoga of postures (known as asanas) as well as breathing techniques to enhance physical, emotional and spiritual health. With regular practice, yoga offers many important health benefits, including lower blood pressure, better stress management, increased strength and flexibility and even weight loss, thanks to a slow and steady calorie burn.

Yoga for Energy and Calorie Burn

Yoga energizes the body and calms the mind. The more physical styles of yoga offered at Yoga Happiness Studio, like Vinyasa yoga, tone the body and support natural weight loss through a steady calorie burn. Other gentler forms of yoga that we offer, such as yin yoga, focus on deep stretching and long-held postures to release muscular tension. No matter what style of yoga that you choose to practice, you will receive many physical, emotional and spiritual health benefits and our instructors will work with you to achieve your specific goals.

Classic Yoga

One of our more popular classes is classic yoga, which is especially popular among new yogis. Proper alignment of yoga postures is important for classic yoga. To prepare for a yoga class at Yoga Happiness Studio, wear clothes that are comfortable but not too baggy, so both you and your yoga instructor will be able to monitor your body’s alignment and ensure you are not inadvertently doing anything harmful to yourself. In hotter classes like Bikram yoga class or more physical yoga practices, you can wear athletic clothes that wick away moisture. This will make it easier to hold poses and transition between poses without slipping.

Classic yoga is a series of standing and seated postures that are purposefully sequenced to not only stretch the muscles, but also to invigorate the body while relaxing the mind. In addition to the physical practice of yoga, our classic yoga classes include meditation and breathing exercises, known as pranayama. Breathing exercises are important for calming the mind while bringing awareness to the body.One of our certified instructors in Columbus will guide you through the breathing exercises, aiding you with proper execution and making sure that you are always comfortable and relaxed throughout the session.

While many individuals enjoy practicing yoga at our Yoga Happiness Studio studio, yoga can also be practiced from home to supplement your classes. Even a short, daily practice will help stretch the body’s muscles and build strength and flexibility, while reducing stress and anxiety. This will also help you move on to one of our more advanced classes sooner than later.
