When someone advises you to follow a fitness routine to strengthen your muscles and improve stamina, the typical picture that sparks in your mind is about lifting weights and slurping protein shakes in between workouts.
Today, a majority of youth is fascinated by a wide range of variations in workouts like resistance training, strength training, muscle-strengthening training carried out in fitness studios.
But does this imply a real fitness routine? Or is it that only a specific type of workout helps you to achieve your fitness goals?
If you are looking for a method that is not just effective for your inner and outer well being but is also as compelling as the other sturdy fitness regimens, then the answer is – High-intensity Yoga by Vinod Dulal!
Let’s unravel how this high-intensity yoga beats other types of fitness regimes.
Targets the entire body
Your body as a whole is integrated, why divide its workout based on the upper and lower body? Plus, if you follow this divided workout plan and miss a lower body workout day, no doubt you are in a loss. So, instead of complicating the process, yoga workouts can be a holistic approach that you can follow to treat your whole body at once and benefit from head-to-toe each day.
Use your own body as a prop
Vinod Dulal yoga style doesn’t make use of any props. When you perform strength-training exercises, you are often supplemented with dumbbells, sand belts, and weights. However, in this yoga style, instead of using these props you are asked to lift your own weight. This eliminates dependencies on such equipment as well as keeps you aware of your weight.
Another psychological benefit is – it helps you connect with your body and mind on a deeper level by finding the balance between them while performing various asanas.
Vinod Dulal’s high-intensity yoga includes poses coupled with different levels of energy, intensity, and speed designed to match the lifestyle of every individual. Every single day you perform a modified set of asanas that supplement the needed enthusiasm and energy for that day. Some days you enjoy the fast-paced 108 Suryanamaskaras while other days you do a combination of sun salutations along with some additional yogasanas to make you feel invigorating the entire day.
Often, when you workout on a treadmill, or go through spinning or weight lifting, it strains your muscles so much that it leads to soreness and sometimes even injuries. However, yoga workout stretches your muscles, frees the tension between them and lubricates your joints which makes you feel more flexible and active throughout the day. Also, if you have concerns like Arthritis or Slipped disc, consistent practice of yoga may help you relieve pain in the long run.
Yoga reduces stress
High-intensity yoga is a perfect activity that can be done in the mornings or evenings when you need a boost either to start or end your stressful day. Once you start doing yoga regularly, you will find a great transformation in your thought process and lifestyle as well. Unlike fitness studios, where you are surrounded by mirrors that make you conscious and compare your performance with others, here you will be concerned just about pushing your own limits and making yourself better than yesterday. This in turn will help you to relieve stress, occupy your mind with positivity, and maintain psychological balance.
Reverses the effects of aging
While the age factor has a significant impact on your health and fitness levels, yoga can help you reverse the signs of aging to a great extent. Some of the initial effects of aging can be encountered on the endurance, speed, and strength of an individual. But, high-intensity yoga can help you improve stamina, strengthen muscles and bones and keep the body active and light.
At last, it depends on your fitness goals to choose a particular style of workout. But, it is always best to choose the one that makes your current fitness levels better than yesterday, gives long-lasting results, and most importantly keeps you grounded in and out! At Vinod Dulal Yoga Institute, our students not only accomplish their health and fitness goals but experience a sense of gratitude for themselves which brings in and out transformation in their lives.
