Even if you aren’t a dancer, yoga is the best way to get and stay healthy.
It helps you to reduce weight and even improves your metabolism and helps in gaining greater flexibility. First, let’s start by watching a video about the types of yoga and poses which you can perform!
Yoga can help dancers in a variety of ways, the top 3 benefits are:-
1) INCREASES FLEXIBILITY OF YOUR BODY
As a dancer, you need your body to be as flexible as possible and this can be done through yoga in many ways.
It has been noted that yoga consists of many standing postures which help in increasing muscle strength.
Poses which focus on the areas of your body which are not that flexible are very helpful and poses such as the big toe pose, bound angle pose, cow face pose , the downward dog and much more.
The poses in yoga such as the balancing ones have their focus on backbends and the center floor and poses which strengthen the back contribute greatly to stabilizing a killer arabesque.
2) HELPS MAINTAIN BALANCE.
As a dancer, you need to have a balance which is very important for the dance acts out there.
When you perform yoga on a regular basis, it leads to giving you a remarkably strong core and this can help you greatly in performing those dance acts which need great balance.
It is very important to maintain a healthy mental balance as well and yoga can truly help you achieve this.
Yoga can help you increase your concentration levels and as a result helps in giving you mental clarity.
Frequent dancing can help to have greater control of your body and dancing can also improve the balance of aging adults.
3) HELPS TO LOSE WEIGHT!
This is obviously very necessary for you, as a dancer to maintain a healthy weight.
Why this is so important because you need more stamina to perform better in your dancing acts and a healthy weight can give you just that.
You can lose weight with yoga because it helps you relax, detoxify your body and seriously increases your body awareness.
Now, when we look at the part of losing weight, yoga is known to help you lose only 3-6 calories every minute but it is possible to lose more calories by performing yoga if you simply consume lesser than you burn.
