Creating the time to commit to a yoga practice is not as hard as we sometimes make it.
A 3 or 5 minute yoga flow is just as beneficial and cleansing as a 60 minute practice.
What is beneficial about a 60 minute yoga practice if you are completely distracted, in pain, can’t relax, and are frustrated the whole time?
If in 3 minutes you are able to center, calm, restore, and cleanse your mind and refresh, does that not seem more beneficial?
The raw truth: sometimes duration is more harmful than quality.
We all would like to reduce anxiety and lose weight, so why not do yoga for beginners to lose weight?
Yoga for Beginners to Lose Weight: Overview
Chandra flows are cooling, restorative practices that can be done at anytime of day.
Typically, the benefits of this practice are amplified in the evening or right before bed.
Deeper sleep, longer sleep quality, reduced anxiety, and clarity of mind are just a few of the amazing benefits!
Now, blending two benefits together sounds amazing to me: reduce anxiety and accomplish that by doing a quick yoga flow.
Let’s begin the yoga for beginners to lose weight flow!
