Yoga for body builders and gym members

Can yoga complement your gym workout?

Yoga will help tone your body but while it’s doing that, it also helps you to be truly in the moment and infuses your spirit with positive energy. A gym workout is focused primarily on improving your body’s physical condition.


Is yoga good for body builders?

Vinyasa or asthanga yoga would be great if you are looking to strengthen your body and build muscle. This is the yoga body builders want to do on a non-weight lifting day. It's gentle on the body and allows deep stretching while strengthening sans weights.



Yoga teaches acceptance

Yoga helps you believe you’re perfect the way you are—with your strengths and your weaknesses. It's true what they say -- yoga is not about self-improvement, it's about self-acceptance. Gym classes, especially boot camp style classes, are more likely to have you feeling like a failure if you can’t do everything.


Yoga is more efficient

Yoga relies on your own—your entire body—for strengthening. Gym classes use weights and other equipment. Through different asanas, your full body becomes toned and stronger by using your own entire body weight as 'weights'.
