It is obviously apparent of the health benefits of a strong yoga regiment. Most professional athletes practice yoga to strengthen their breathing, and to stretch muscles tightened during use. Since it helps smooth out tight muscles, yoga can be a wonderful complement to weight training. One Asana posture that’s ideal for those looking to develop upper body strength and muscularity is the chatturanga dandasana, which differs greatly from the standard push-up we all learned in gym class.
Did you know that "Yoga" is actually a system made up of eight limbs, and is not just the physical practice that we are led to believe what yoga is out west? There is more to yoga than flowing through movements and poses. The physical movements and poses are only one of the eight limbs, "Asana", pronounced Ahh-sah-nah.
