For some, this is an easy question to answer. For others, there are many variables they need to work through for an answer. Let me start with saying yoga is not for everyone. Sure, there is plenty of benefits for all areas of life that yoga can assist with. However, just like a diet, yoga may not be the answer for you personally, the end all to suffering. Yoga is not the magic pill; the only answer in life. Yoga does, though, offer a ton of help to body, mind, and soul.
For me, yoga started with the Wii Fit as I was attempting to lose weight and build some strength I had lost over the years. It was not until many years later that I dove in deeper with practicing yoga through YouTube. I carved out some time in my lunch break to practice 30 minutes of yoga while hidden in my office. I quickly noticed the change in my work performance and stress level throughout the day. I was toning my arms, losing weight, becoming more balanced not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. It was here I started to really dig deeper into this yoga thing. It was there I started to see that the yogic practice and philosophy in lines with many of the believes I already had. Yoga ended up enhancing many areas of my personal life. It is making my journey on this planet more worthwhile as I not only stretch my body, but my mind and soul as well.
My answer to the question is it depends on what you are hoping to gain or lose by adding yoga to your life. I suggest talking with a yogi and see what they think about yoga for your specific needs, life style, and time constraints. Attempting some yoga poses or classes may aid in seeing if your see the benefits of yoga. If you have any questions, I and my team at Spark. are open to talking about different areas of yoga and how it may help.
