Discover how to increase energy in the body with yoga


Is your typical day comprised of driving to work, staring at a computer screen for hours, getting stuck in traffic on the way home, and feeling too tired at the end of the day to spend time with your loved ones?

Because of a stressful week at work, are you unable to pursue your hobby on weekends? If you answered yes, your body is most likely suffering from a lack of prana or energy.

Discover how to increase energy in the body with yoga

The body requires energy to perform any mental or physical activity. This energy is obtained by eating healthy foods and getting enough sleep. Yoga practice and regular meditation, in addition to these two sources, energies the body.

Note: All the asanas and pranayama should be performed under the guidance of your certified yoga teacher.

Yoga For Enhanced Energy Levels

Yoga postures are the most cost-effective way to provide deep relaxation and rejuvenation to the body. After sitting for long periods of time or switching between tasks, one may feel energized.

Yoga improves the body's 'prana,' or life force energy, by removing blockages along the spinal cord and smoothing the energy flow.

Transforming Energy With Yoga
