Many people have already discovered that yoga can be a fun way to get in shape and stay fit. There are many different forms and positions to learn that can help you get in shape. Many of them can also be used to deal with specific health problems, too, and it is also able to improve your health in general.

Get in Shape

More and more people use yoga to get into shape and stay that way. Both men and women have found that yoga meets their needs for exercise and to keep the pounds off. Some forms of yoga are especially known to help with weight loss, enabling you to burn off the calories quickly.

A good yoga workout will leave you feeling good. You will have stretched a lot of muscles, like nearly all of them, and you will have increased your strength, too. When you are done, you will feel relaxed; your head will be clearer, and your body more flexible.


In addition to the overall strenuous workout that you can get from the many positions and movements, there are also some other benefits worth mentioning. This must include giving you better balance, more strength, an increased tone to your muscles, and better cardio health. Regularly using these muscles in the various exercises also helps you regulate your metabolism, too.

People who practice yoga regularly also testify to its mental benefits, too. This includes a greater clarity of mind, and a reduction in overall stress. It also helps you feel better, because, as an exercise, it will help reduce pain, too, including the kind you get in your lower back and from arthritis. Just as important, it can also help you sleep better and reduce headaches.

Helps You Move Again

If you are a little older and have been feeling that your muscles are getting stiff, then yoga may be the perfect exercise for you. It is not a high impact exercise, and there are many exercises to stretch and loosen up those joints. At the same time, it can also strengthen those muscles and enable you to stay well-toned.

Lose Weight

When you take up yoga, you will also find that it can be very good to help you lose weight, too. While some forms of yoga are more directed to losing weight than other forms, you will likely find that you are surprised at how much weight you could lose in a class.

Exercise with a Class

Staying in shape is always easier when performed as a group. You meet new people who can soon become your friends. Being that they are also in the class reveals that they have at least one common interest with you. Instructors also provide motivation and encouragement, as well as instruction to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly and safely.

The AmeriKick Martial Arts school offers a number of yoga classes for adults. All of our instructors have been practicing for years and are certified. We are located on Staten Island in New York City and we invite you to contact us to learn more about our classes and our instructors.
