A few of the reasons I Practice yoga
Yoga, for me, is an incredible de-stressor. Going to class allows me to leave my worries at the door, relax and breathe. I'm also routinely inspired by teachers' positive words and stories, a couple of times even to tears.
Fortunately, I'm not a very stressed out person. But I still love yoga's ability calm my internal chatter and allow me to think more clearly and happily.
Yoga is a great full-body workout, in my opinion. In part because local teachers are really good at putting together sequences that address muscles groups throughout your body, including those that don't often get stretched when you run, bike, etc.
Personally, one of my favorite kinds of yoga is hot yoga, where the room is roughly 95 degrees. Especially hot yoga gives me a really deep sweat.
I've had an incredible time going to all different types of free, donation, donation for a cause, and other yoga events and classes in the Denver area. And you can too! We are #blessed to live in a city with a very lively yoga scene that provide a ton of different experiences.
