Your health in the New Year: How is yoga beneficial?
If you're thinking of adopting a healthier lifestyle in the New Year, or perhaps just want to try something different, yoga could be highly beneficial. Yoga has a number of benefits in terms of health and everyday activity, which could help you feel better heading into 2014.
You've probably heard a lot about different types of yoga as it has been a popular form of exercise for a number of years and is often spoken about in the media. It is an incredibly old form of exercise that helps to boost physical health as well as mental wellbeing. Yoga uses numerous exercises that improve strength, breathing and flexibility.
Most of yoga is about different postures. These help to stretch muscles, work out any knots and get you to relax. It is a great way to get past the stresses that your day can bring while also toning up your body.
As yoga helps to improve strength, balance and flexibility, it has a number of health benefits. It is also highly relaxing, which is why some studies have suggested it is incredibly good for lowering blood pressure, which can reduce the risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Yoga has also been linked to helping relieve aches and pains, such as lower back pain, as well as being beneficial for those that suffer from stress or depression.
Because yoga poses depend upon what you are able to do, it is a great way to ease yourself into exercise. You'll find that the more regularly you do yoga, the better able you are to stay in poses for longer and the wider range of moves and poses you can perform.
It is an incredibly gentle form or exercise and so is perfect for anyone that has not performed regular exercise, has arthritis or limited mobility. Yoga is about the individual so you are able to tailor your workout entirely for you.
As you become more adept at yoga poses, you may find that you are able to enter into other exercise types without stress or pain, helping your health even more.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
