If you're an enthusiastic yogi there's no need to stop your practice while on holiday in Winchester. Of course you can bring your yoga mat and ease out a practice in the lounge of your rented accommodation or you could enlighten your practice by attending one of these local yoga classes.
Meet new people, learn new poses, practice new techniques and jazz up your practice. Not only will this refresh your go-to flow but it will also keep you in a routine so when you return home from your Winchester holiday your tree pose is on point due to practice, not because you're stiff as a log.
Benefits of Yoga and Why You Should Keep Practice Up Regularly.
The primary stress hormone called cortisal has been studied alongside yoga and it has been proven that after a three-month yoga program, the women had significantly lower levels of cortisol. They also had lower levels of stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression.
Yoga emphasises the importance of being in the present moment and finding peace in the current state. This could be a factor to why yoga helps relieve anxiety.
Improves heart health
Any exercise above nothing helps improve the heart so even if you're a yoga newbie, rolling out the mat could help improve your heart health. Simple stretching and beginner yoga poses help get the blood pumping round the body delivering importance nutrients to the areas needed leading to lower blood pressure resulting in a healthier heart! Simples.
Promotes sleep quality
For most holiday makers the first night is always a restless one being in a new environment on a new mattress. Your teritorial instincts kick in putting you on an alert mode. On holiday, the following nights should be relaxed and yoga could help with this. Yoga has been shown to increase the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness leading to falling asleep faster, sleeping longer and feeling more well-rested in the morning.
