Yoga class to improve your Circulation:
Another benefit of yoga is good circulation. Good circulation means that blood flows to all the cells and organs of your body. Good circulation includes the flow of lymphatic fluid as well, which helps to keep your body’s immune system strong. A healthy circulatory system means increased energy, healthier organs, better digestion and improved immunity. Your overall health is dependent upon optimum function of cells which depend on proper blood supply.
Your heart pumps blood to your arteries but as your blood gets to the extremities of your body, the blood pressure decreases. Yoga can help to keep your blood pressure normal. The horizontal postures of yoga help to relax your body and reduce blood pressure. Not only does your yoga help to circulate nutrients to your cells, but improved circulation also means improved removal of waste.
Yoga massages your circulatory vessels in your limbs while you are practicing standing postures for example, thereby improving your circulation. Yoga compresses your internal organs during twists and this helps not only do aid in digestion but also improves the health of your internal organs by improving the blood flow to these organs. Inversions are fantastic for bringing fluids back to your heart for re-circulation.
