    5 Reasons Why Yoga Is for Every Mom


    Hey there, busy moms! We know you're juggling a million things at once—running errands, managing schedules, and taking care of everyone else. But what about taking care of yourself? We've got something that might just change your life: Yoga.


    Now, before you dismiss it as something only the super-flexible and zen can do, hear us out. Yoga is for every mom, no matter where you live or how hectic your schedule may be. It's not just about striking a pose—it's a way of finding balance, both physically and mentally.


    In this article, we're going to give you five compelling reasons why you shouldn't ignore yoga any longer. So grab a cup of tea, find a quiet corner (if that's even possible), and get ready to discover how yoga can transform your life as a busy mom. Trust us, you won't regret it.

    Yoga Improves Your Flexibility and Strength


    Yoga is not just for the flexible and strong, but it can actually help you improve your flexibility and strength over time. When you begin practicing yoga, you may find that certain poses feel challenging or even impossible to do.
    But don't worry, with consistent practice, you will gradually notice improvements in your flexibility and strength. Yoga poses gently stretch and lengthen your muscles, helping to improve your range of motion and flexibility.


    As you progress in your practice, you will find that you are able to sink deeper into poses and hold them for longer periods of time. This increased flexibility not only makes everyday movements easier but also helps to prevent injuries.
    Additionally, yoga helps to build strength by using the resistance of your own body weight in various poses and sequences. You may be surprised at how quickly you start to notice increased muscle tone and strength in areas like your arms, legs, core, and back.
    So whether you can touch your toes or not, yoga is a great way for moms living in the outback and beyond to improve their flexibility and strength.

    Yoga Reduces Stress and Anxiety


    As a mom living in the outback and beyond, it's no secret that life can get pretty hectic.
    Between juggling the kids, household chores, and a job, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed.
    That's where yoga comes in. Yoga has been proven to be an excellent stress-reliever, helping to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. The combination of deep breathing, mindfulness, and gentle movements can help calm your mind and release tension in your body.
    So the next time you're feeling frazzled, take a moment for yourself and roll out your yoga mat. You'll be amazed at how quickly those feelings of stress melt away.

    Yoga Enhances Your Focus and Concentration


    Moms, we all know how challenging it can be to maintain focus and concentration in our busy lives. But did you know that practicing yoga can actually enhance your ability to stay present and focused? It's true!


    Mind-Body Connection


    Yoga is not just about physical exercise; it's about connecting your mind and body. By slowing down, focusing on your breath, and moving through yoga poses, you are training your mind to stay present in the moment. This increased mindfulness carries over into other areas of your life, allowing you to maintain focus and concentration even when things get hectic


    Stress Reduction


    One of the main benefits of yoga is its ability to reduce stress. When you are stressed, it can be difficult to concentrate on anything else. Yoga helps activate the relaxation response in our bodies, calming the nervous system and reducing stress levels. As a result, you'll find it easier to focus on the task at hand and let go of distracting thoughts


    Improved Cognitive Function


    Research has shown that regular yoga practice can improve cognitive function, including attention span and memory. By engaging in yoga poses that require concentration and balance, you are challenging your brain and enhancing its ability to stay focused. This increased cognitive function will not only benefit you during your yoga practice but also in your daily life as a mom.


    Mental Clarity


    In addition to improving focus and concentration, yoga can also provide mental clarity. When our minds are cluttered with thoughts and worries, it can be difficult to think clearly or make decisions. Yoga helps quiet the mind by allowing us to let go of unnecessary thoughts and distractions. This mental clarity allows us to approach tasks with a clear mind and make decisions more efficiently.

    Connect with Your Body

    Yoga gives you an opportunity to connect with your body and become aware of how your body moves and feels. This awareness can help you become tuned in to your body's needs and help you make healthier choices in your daily life. Through mindful movements, you can increase your strength and coordinate.
    In addition, yoga can help you gain flexibility and stability, which can be especially beneficial for moms, who often carry a lot of stress in their bodies.

    Cultivate Inner Peace

    When you're a busy mom, it can be hard to make time for yourself. But yoga can help. Taking time to practice yoga on a regular basis can help you cultivate inner peace and give you time to be present and simply enjoy the moment. Through yoga, you can learn how to relax and let go of stress, which can be beneficial for both your physical and mental health.

    Yoga Promotes Better Posture and Balance


    When you think of yoga, you may immediately picture people twisting themselves into pretzel-like positions. But did you know that yoga can actually improve your posture and balance? It's true! Here's how:


    Strengthening Core Muscles

    Yoga poses often require you to engage your core muscles, which are responsible for maintaining good posture and balance. By regularly practicing yoga, you can strengthen these muscles, leading to better overall posture and balance in your daily life.


    Increased Body Awareness



    Yoga not only helps to improve your physical strength, but it also increases your body awareness. Through practicing various poses and focusing on your breath, you become more in tune with your body and how it moves. This heightened awareness can translate into better posture and balance as you become more conscious of your body's alignment.


    Correcting Imbalances


    Many of us have imbalances in our bodies, whether it's from sitting at a desk all day or carrying children on one hip. These imbalances can throw off our posture and balance. However, yoga can help to correct these imbalances by stretching and strengthening different muscles, bringing your body back into alignment


    So, if you find yourself slouching or feeling off-balance, don't ignore yoga. Incorporating a regular yoga practice into your routine can help you improve your posture, enhance your balance, and ultimately, lead to a healthier and more confident you.
    And with Revive Wear's handmade leggings and swimwear, you can look stylish and feel comfortable while practicing yoga.

    How Yoga Can Improve Your Wellness

    Yoga relieves aches and pains, improves flexibility, balance and posture, builds muscle and strength, improves depression and anxiety, enhances alertness and positive feelings, improves cardiovascular health and aids in the regulation of blood glucose levels.

    Medical Yoga Therapy is the supervised practice of a certified trained therapist in yoga for the prevention and recovery of various chronic conditions.

    1. Hypothesis that Yoga can improve cardiovascular health by reducing hypertension, heart rate and balancing blood glucose levels, via stimulating the parasympathetic system. I state that this is a hypothesis due to lack of strong evidence in clinical studies. However at the bottom of this page is a simple algorithm of events that can occur within the body to support this theory.

    2. Yoga relieves anxiety with the practice of meditation, breathing techniques and distractions which involve the mindfulness and concentration of yoga poses, and assists with coping strategies of emotional triggers.

    3. Yoga eliminates excessive stress. A few clinical studies have shown the relationship between yoga and the increased function of neurotransmitters and hormones particularly in areas that control emotions, executive functioning and sleep/wake cycles. 

    4. Yoga has been effective along side other treatment algorithms in traumatic cases. Trauma sensitive yoga treatments provide support in healing and recovery for people with traumatic illnesses.

    5. Yoga has been proven in clinical trials to be an added treatment in the recovery from low back pain.

     While treating depression alongside pharmacological treatments, trials showed a modest result in short term benefits.

    🧘‍♂️It is important to note that research in yoga showed in some studies that there were small sample sizes, inadequate controls and large bias. 

    🧘‍♂️ Excessive stress>> increased cortisol>> metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates>>converted to glucose>> raised blood glucose levels, immune system suppressed, retention of sodium and water>> increases blood pressure.

    🧘‍♂️If you decide to start Yoga, as with any exercise regime, please discuss this with your Medical Officer. Hopefully in the near future, funding and participants may be available for more rigorous clinical trials in yoga.
