What is Local Yoga Instructors

A local yoga teacher is a health and wellness provider. A local yoga teacher shows people how to do a variety of yoga poses. If you see out a local yoga teacher, you’ll find that they have different types of certifications. It’s important to figure out what type of yoga is right for you, as there are many different types: Bikram, Hatha and Kundalini. For example, Bikram yoga is hot, so it may not be suitable for all people. 

The Benefits of Yoga 

There are a number of benefits to yoga, both physical and mental. Yoga can improve strength, balance, flexibility, coordination and stability. Yoga is also beneficial to your mental health. It can reduce anxiety and lower cortisol (the stress hormone). Yoga can also help with insomnia.

The Difference Between Yoga and Pilates

There are benefits to both yoga and Pilates. Yoga and Pilates both involve breathing exercises. While you hold a pose in yoga, Pilates involves holding a pose and make moves to engage your core. 

Yoga and Your Family Doctor

Whether you’re struggling with obesity, managing a chronic condition or simply want to improve flexibility, yoga can help. Some people find that yoga improves their chronic condition, such as reducing blood glucose in people with diabetes. People who have suffered a stroke may benefit from doing yoga to improve balance.
