Day 32 of the 60 Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge

We’re on Day 32 and we’re going to cover my other OPTIMIZING workout for you.

We will be learning all about yoga today! Here are some interesting facts about yoga that you might not know: 

Yoga's origins can be traced back to India, over 5,000 years ago. 

The word yoga was first mentioned in ancient sacred texts called the Vedas, which are a set of four ancient sacred texts written in Sanskrit. 

Yoga asanas, which are a common practice in the West, are actually a small portion of the overall life practice of yoga.

Let me answer a few common questions about yoga...

So, what are the benefits of Yoga? Yoga creates a mind-body balance; relaxes and calms the mind and body; helps manage stress; energizes you and more 

What are the types of yoga (asana)? Easy beginner levels or higher intensity versions, like vinyasa yoga. Practice it 1-2 times a week to reap the benefits of Yoga.

Is yoga scientifically-proven? Studies show that anxiety and depression, along with physical ailments, like back pain, can be improved with meditation and controlled, physical movements  

Your homework for today is: To practice yoga for at least 5 minutes 3 times this week. This can be meditating, practicing downward dog or an hour of vinyasa practice. I got addicted after forcing myself THREE times!
