Welcome back to Liv Ahwatukee’s blog. In our post today we’re sharing some ideas for taking advantage of our on-site fitness center! Yoga is something that can be practiced anywhere, even from home. It is very low impact and it can be a great addition to your evening routine. Since little equipment is required, you don’t have to have a ton of space. Near your Phoenix apartment are a few establishments where you can attend a yoga class.
The American Osteopathic Association has a ton of information as to why yoga is beneficial for you. It says, “Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind.”
It then quotes Dr. Natalie Nevins, a physician in California: “Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate. Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life.”
The Liv Ahwatukee fitness center is a great place to try your yoga routine. A great workout starts with great gear as well. We suggest Lululemon athletic wear for your exercise needs. Their pieces are great for yoga because they breathe well and will hold up no matter what pose you’re doing. Along with your workout we suggest a great yoga mat and a water bottle to accompany your workout. Swell water bottles come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit your needs.
If you’re looking for something more formal, check out these suggestion from Yelp for yoga studios and classes in the Phoenix area. These tips will help you get a great start with yoga. Have fun trying a new workout this month. Thanks for reading the Liv Ahwatukee blog.
