It’s December and the holidays are fast approaching. It’s a time of fun, laughter and also a fair amount of stress due to the combination of work, family time, events and shopping along with the occasional workout. Fitness and exercise tends to take a back seat at this time of year unfortunately. Even 20 minutes would help one shift to a different perspective of doing some physical activity that would cause the brain to focus on something else. 20-30 minutes of exercise can reduce the stress because exercise will release endorphins in your body. Endorphins are those feel-good neurotransmitters that your own body makes. The more active you are, the more freely they float through your bloodstream. The less active, the endorphins drop off. The ability to workout with other enhances the pleasure aspect The social aspect (even if you don’t know anyone) adds to the pleasure and positive feelings. The positive effects can even run into the quasi-spiritual if you find the “zen” or “the zone” where you are so fully engaged in that physical activity that everything else fades away.

Join The Millions Finding Solace Through Yoga
By Ruben Dua, CEO of Easypose
Today, the human race is busier and more distracted than ever. Technology alone has made us more complacent, disconnected, and inactive. At the same time, there’s a growing popularity in health awareness. We want to eat better, live longer, and embody an overall sense of wellbeing. That is why exercise is so important. Of the many options offered at gyms and in studios, yoga seems to be the fastest growing practice. Not only does it embrace more meditative and movement oriented techniques, but with regular use it’s been found to help reduce back pain and stress, while improving strength and flexibility.
So it’s no wonder that there’s been a shift, a rise in its popularity. Why not be one of the millions finding solace through yoga? Stay active, get fit, and more than anything, find the peace of mind you so rightly deserve. The combination of a physical and psychological practice can propel individuals into a much healthier state of being. No one can argue that that is the ultimate goal for anyone who works out. But maybe you haven’t tried yoga or it seems too spiritual for you. Perhaps it’s time to look past preconceived notions and see why so many have taken up the cause.
There are various ways to explore how people participate in and are finding relief through yoga. Possibly the clearest example comes from plain statistics. 9.5% of adults in the United States, or 21 million people, were verified in participating or truly embracing the art of yoga in 2012. The National Health Interview Survey goes on to say that,
“…This is a significant increase from 6.1% in 2007 and 5.1% in 2002.”
So it is abundantly clear that people not only want to partake, but their interest (and fascination) is also growing.
It’s easy to see that the millions finding happiness through yoga are getting the right kind of results. Otherwise, why would popularity continue to rise? This might be due to the fact that access is easier than ever, between streaming videos and in-home services. Even more fascinating is the way startup companies are now combining technology with fitness offers. Tech startups like Easypose are looking to prove that no matter your schedule, no matter your background or physical prowess, exercise is available to everyone. And not just any kind, but personal training that caters to your every need.
Clearly, the demand for yoga is rising. Yoga studios are popping up all over. Computer companies are naming their laptops after it. Entire clothing lines are based around yoga. And as this mentality grows, the popularity will too. You might even say yoga has become its own culture.
That’s why providing practitioners with a convenient, affordable, and professional service is so imperative. With the growing on-demand market, classes are becoming more affordable and easier to schedule. There are amazing services that allow for a qualified yoga instructor to come directly to a home or business. So of course the practice is going to flourish.
With the platform that Easypose set-up, making connections is simpler than ever. Students can easily sign up through the website or app and in no time, have a yoga trainer at their beck and call. Other like-minded students are meeting as well, and small communities are starting to grow. Even instructors have an easier time collecting payments and keeping a schedule, all while making classes affordable.
Take advantage of having the art of yoga at your doorstep. Realize that Easypose is the catalyst for connecting people through fitness. There is a solution for modern lethargy. Technology doesn’t have to just be a distraction or a way to get through work. Now we can use it to enjoy daily routines, like workouts, without having to pay exorbitant gym fees. Not only that, but companies like Easypose enable consumers to bring the studio directly to where they are.
Realize you’re more than an automaton. Being inert goes against all of our programming as human beings. Foster a higher sense of health and wellness. There might be millions finding relief through yoga, but you’re the only one that can change yourself for the better.
