Should You Incorporate Yoga Into Your Wellness Regime?

Wellness is not defined simply by a body in good physical shape; it also relies on a healthy mind and soul. For thousands of years, yoga has been practised for its physical, mental and spiritual benefits.

At Chi of Life, we offer two yoga sessions per week as a part of our holistic approach to weight loss and wellbeing, providing both a physical and spiritual detox for our clients. Along with physical benefits such as increased flexibility, improved posture and lean muscle development, yoga helps to relieve stress and encourage inner peace, making it the perfect complement to our life-changing transformation program.

Unlike traditional yoga programs that focus solely on yoga as the be all and end all of health and wellbeing, Chi of Life provides a well-rounded wellness program that considers all of the factors and practices that contribute to your wellness, including:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical exercise
  • Meditation
  • Positive healing.

Our friendly and knowledgeable team, including our passionate, experienced and fully-qualified yoga instructors, Shezi and Jodi will help you on the path to strength, relaxation and empowerment during your health retreat.

Healthy Body, Mind and Soul

Yoga encourages healthy habits through exercising discipline and encouraging self-awareness. Through yoga, your body becomes physically healthier and your mind and soul are motivated and prepared to continue on this journey to a healthier lifestyle through better choices and self-worth.

Physical Benefits

Yoga is a great practice to add to your weight loss and wellness journey as it benefits your body in a number of ways. Yoga can:

  • Improve flexibility
  • Improve balance
  • Increase muscle strength
  • Improve posture
  • Boost cartilage and joint protection
  • Protect the spine
  • Strengthen bones
  • Strengthen and lengthen muscles
  • Increase blood flow
  • Naturally drain lymphs to boost immunity
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower blood sugar
  • Assist with sleep
  • Maintain your nervous system
  • Prevent digestive issues.

Yoga effectively aids your body inside and out with immediate and long-lasting results you can truly feel. Alongside our personally tailored nutrition plan and group exercise, yoga also assists in obtaining a slim and toned physique.

Mental Benefits

The positive mental health benefits of yoga have made it a popular practice for people from all walks of life. Combined with our group hypnosis, positive healing and meditation classes, yoga provides a natural solution for stress relief and relaxation, providing real benefits for your mental wellbeing. Professional psychologists even recommend yoga to patients as it’s known to:

  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Relieve stress and anxiety
  • Improve stress management
  • Teach control over negative thoughts
  • Promote relaxation
  • Improve self-discipline
  • Sharpen attention span
  • Improve reaction time

With a strong focus on improving your mental wellbeing, we have included yoga in our program to optimise the positive energy and relaxation process.

Spiritual Benefits

Spiritual detoxes have gained popularity for their ability to provide a supportive and peaceful environment to focus on yourself – something that our everyday lives often don’t allow us to get around to! The Chi of Life wellness detox offers yoga to nurture your soul and benefit your spiritual wellness in a number of different ways. For instance, yoga:

  • Encourages mindfulness
  • Increases self-esteem
  • Gives you inner strength
  • Builds self-awareness
  • Encourages forgiveness and acceptance
  • Increases emotional healing
  • Promotes inner peace.

At Chi of Life, we believe everyone deserves time to relax, recharge and learn self-love. This is why our approach to wellness includes yoga – and why our retreat aims to promote entire physical, mental and spiritual health.
