If you don't like exercising outdoors in the winter, there are some good options. Yoga is helpful because it helps keep joints limber during the winter months.
There are many types of Yoga, which I will not get into here.
I have practiced mostly Hatha Yoga, which is based on exercises called Asanas. They range from standing exercises to lying. If practiced right, yoga can work muscles head to toe. It shouldn't been too hard to start. You increase effort as your body adapts. You will know this too. Listen to your body, and don't do anything that causes pain. If you practice with intention, you can improve health and well-being.
Here Are Some Of The Most Common Benefits:
Please remember that Yoga is not a religion, it is open to all faiths. Really, it's more of a life style. It can help you re-connect with yourself. Some people add meditation to their practice. I sometimes end my hour of practice with a meditation.
It's not necessary to be in a hot room. Some people find that a warm room helps their muscles relax more. Drink lots of water AFTER, not before.
The big plus is... you may (as I did), find that you can do things you couldn't do before yoga. It can lower your risk of injury in the sports you play all summer.
Yoga can be practiced anywhere. All you need is a mat. If you have never been properly introduced to yoga, you might want to check out a class, or online videos. I first started with Bikram Yoga, and then I branched out. For somebody who hasn't done yoga before, Bikram may be a bit intimidating. For those of you who don't know what Bikram yoga is, it's yoga practiced in a 105 degree room, using the same 26 postures.
So this winter, give it a go, instead of sitting around complaining how tired you feel. Combined with meditation, it can improve your health.
