Explore the Benefits of Adding Yoga to Your Exercise Regimen

Beautiful,Cute,Sporty,Woman,Doing,Exercise,In,Bright,Room.,FocusedMany people are looking for new ways to improve their fitness, especially after the New Year. Yoga provides benefits like improved flexibility, along with increased balance and strength. While yoga is associated with pretzel-like poses, even basic yoga can give you these benefits when you perform them a few times weekly. Yoga also has the advantage of complementing any exercise routine. 

Learn more about the benefits of adding classes at Aria’s Yoga Studio to your exercise routine. 

Supplementing Routines

Adding yoga to your existing routine can improve your performance and recovery, whether you engage in aerobic exercise like running and cycling or anaerobic activities like weight training. In addition, yoga reduces stress, helping you feel calmer and relaxed.


Yoga improves your range of motion by loosening your joints and muscles. Poses like forward folds and hip openers significantly improve your balance and flexibility over time, helping you move more freely.


Modern work environments often require you to hunch over a phone or computer all day, which can ruin your posture over time. Yoga helps correct this problem by improving muscle balance in your core, leading to a taller stance and better skeletal alignment. Good poses for improving posture include the chair, mountain, and triangle poses.

Stress Relief

Flowing from one pose to the next requires focusing on the present moment, especially your breathing. As a result, it helps release pent-up tension and calm your mind. Deeply relaxing poses include the corpse pose, child’s pose, and seated poses, which can make a big difference in your overall sense of well-being.


Beginners typically start with 10 to 15 minutes of gentle, easy poses like bridge, downward dog, and warrior three to four times a week. Over time, yoga practitioners work up to 30- to 60-minute sessions of advanced poses to build core strength, like a boat, chair, and plank.
