10 Benefits of SLOW FLOW YOGA

Slow flow yoga, often referred to as gentle , offers a variety of physical, mental, and emotional benefits. It involves a slower and more deliberate pace of movement and mindfulness, focusing on deep stretching, breathing, and relaxation. Here are some of the key benefits of slow flow yoga:

1. Improved Flexibility:  Slow flow yoga emphasizes holding poses for longer durations, which can lead to increased flexibility over time. This is supported by studies such as a 2013 review published in the International Journal of Yoga, which found that regular practice of yoga, including slow flow, can enhance flexibility.

2. Stress Reduction:  Slow flow yoga encourages mindfulness and deep, controlled breathing, which can reduce stress and promote relaxation. Studies, such as one published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in 2013, suggest that mindfulness-based practices like yoga can significantly reduce stress and anxiety.

3. Enhanced Posture and Alignment: Practicing slow flow yoga helps improve body awareness and encourages proper alignment. This can lead to better posture, reducing the risk of musculoskeletal issues. A study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies in 2019 found that yoga interventions improved postural alignment and body awareness.

4. Muscle Strength and Endurance:  Despite its gentle nature, slow flow yoga can build muscle strength and endurance, particularly in the core and stabilizer muscles. Research, such as a 2013 study in the Journal of Yoga & Physical Therapy, supports the idea that yoga can enhance muscular strength.

5. Balance and Stability: Slow flow yoga often incorporates balance poses, which can improve balance and stability. A study published in the International Journal of Yoga in 2013 indicated that yoga can enhance balance and proprioception.

6. Pain Management:  Slow flow yoga may provide relief for individuals with chronic pain conditions, such as low back pain or arthritis. Research, including a 2011 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, has shown that yoga can reduce pain and improve physical function in people with chronic pain.

7. Mental Clarity and Focus: Practicing slow flow yoga can help sharpen mental focus and clarity. A 2012 study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that yoga interventions enhance cognitive function and memory.

8. Better Sleep: Regular practice of slow flow yoga has been associated with improved sleep quality and can be a natural remedy for insomnia. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in 2009 showed that yoga can improve sleep patterns and quality.

9. Emotional Balance: Slow flow yoga promotes emotional balance and self-awareness, aiding in the management of mood disorders like depression and anxiety. Research, such as a 2013 study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, suggests that yoga can be a valuable adjunct therapy for emotional well-being.

10. Reduced Blood Pressure:  Slow flow yoga has been found to contribute to reduced blood pressure, which is important for heart health. A study published in the Journal of Hypertension in 2013 showed that yoga is effective in lowering blood pressure.

What is  your why?  What is your take-away?
Why are you here? BTW- I am so glad that you are.

Let’s get real.  Life is busy and often hard.  It’s a challenge to juggle the balance work, kids, loved ones, health, emotions, mindset… but we can.  We all want to find enlightenment or a better body or maybe Vairāgya.  However, we are not living like a monk and cannot take time to extensively meditate.  I am happy if I tap into that divine source here and there.  When I do that – it guides me through the rest of my life.  This is what I want to share with you.  Feeling better in the body but also mentally and spiritually.  Let’s celebrate and share our victories especially the small ones.  SHINE YOUR BRILLIANT LIGHT.
