Why Yoga? and Why Core 7 Yoga?
Updated: Apr 17, 2019
Yoga has become incredibly popular over the last couple of years in America. According to Yoga Alliance around 36.7 million Americans practice yoga today, compared to the 20.4 million in 2012. Yoga is quite complicated to define, but it can be considered “a system, not of beliefs, but of techniques and guidance for enriched living (Yoga Alliance).” Yoga is used for awareness of self, physical fitness, healing, focus, discipline, peace, stress relief, and overall better well-being. It means many different things to a lot of people, so you have to find what it means to you through your own personal experiences to decide. There are also a plethora of health benefits that come with practicing yoga like; improved posture, flexibility, muscle strength, increased blood flow, and overall happiness (Health Inquire). Practicing yoga has become very mainstream lately, with endless amounts of studios and styles to choose from as well as online outlets to help people learn. With these amazing varieties and outlets yoga is now extremely available, but with so many different channels it can be hard to find the right one for you, or even figure out where to start looking to begin your journey.
The choices in the world of exercise have become so abundant that we understand it can be overwhelming, especially if you’re just beginning. Many people jump into a gym or exercise style that they are not completely prepared for and can easily become injured or not see results they’ve hoped for. This is why we’ve created Core 7 Performance Yoga. Core 7 has been designed to teach people the proper technique of yoga and take them through each foundational step to become the best version of their self. We focus on your core, proper breathing, and progressing your yoga skills safely and effectively. With this program, you will understand the purpose of each movement, and how to get the most out of every exercise, feeling and seeing the results you’ve wanted.
