An average day at the office can be hard on your body. Whether you sit in front of a computer all day or are on your feet, your job has an adverse effect on your body. Consider turning to Bikram yoga to give your body the relief and strength it needs to protect you from the strains of the modern office.
Poor circulation results from sitting all day, keeping your legs crossed or bent for periods of time, and a failure to stretch periodically. Poor circulation can lead to dizziness, blood clots, and numbness in your feet and legs. A lack of blood flow to your lower extremities can also cause varicose veins. Many of the poses used in Bikram yoga are designed to stimulate blood circulation and decrease high blood pressure. This can create a healthy balance throughout the vascular system.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain can result from sitting or standing for too long. By practicing Bikram yoga, you’ll learn how to build up the muscles around your back and in your upper thighs to provide your lower back with enough muscular support to prevent strain and discomfort.
Sore Muscles and Shoulder Knots
Hours of typing and everyday office stress can lead to sore back muscles and shoulder knots. You could spend hundreds of dollars on weekly massages to relieve your sore muscles or you could begin attending Bikram yoga classes. As your muscles become stronger and your blood circulation increases, your muscles will relax.
Your body doesn’t burn many calories as you sit still. Additionally, many people much on sweets and salty foods throughout a workday in order to stay alert. Bikram yoga helps you build muscles so that your metabolism keeps working for you, even while you sit still at your desk.
