some of you already know that yoga is good for you, some of you might think that you don't have time for anything, let alone a yoga class. Yes, yoga class would be nice, but you can definitely squeeze 10 minutes every day in your busy schedule, and do a simple yoga exercise at home, while kids are gone to school, or in the evening when they are gone to bed.
Yoga has many health benefits, just to mention few:
1. even a short regular yoga practice can significantly improve your sleep
2. certain poses can aid digestion
3. yoga and meditation can improve your memory and brain function
4. yoga will make you calmer and more relaxed overall, reducing stress and anxiety.
Me and my team at Living Green with Baby are developing yoga miniseries designed specifically for busy moms, so anybody (even busy dads) can do simple poses at home or on a go, and take advantage of the many benefits yoga has to offer. I encourage every busy mom to try some yoga basics, you can follow our easy instructional videos, or you can try a yoga class when you have time and learn few basic poses you will then practice on your own.
But don't forget to listen to your body and stop if you feel pain or excessive discomfort. Little by little you will be able to do more, but don’t push it beyond your limits. Basic yoga should be your helping tool to stay active every day, rather than a physical challenge.
