Even if you have no first-hand experience with yoga, you probably know someone who cannot imagine life without it ... Why? Because the phenomenon of yoga flows from the fact that its beneficial and versatile effects on the body and mind can already be felt after the first sessions. Do not worry about not being able to assume all the “poses” – with the MultiSport card you will quickly discover that yoga is an activity for everyone!

Yoga is good for everything – truly!

It is well known that yoga trains the body and soul … but what does that actually mean? Originating in Hindu culture, this “art of life” consists in physical and mental self-improvement , the aim of which is to achieve peace and inner harmony by focusing on one’s breathing and adopting specific positions, or so-called asanas. You are probably familiar with the picturesque names for poses such as “Lotus Flower”, “Tree” or “Sun Salutation”? Although they describe specific positions the practitioner should assume and hold, they also have philosophical overtones and are associated with energy derived directly from nature.

Ancient yogis knew about the universally positive influence of yoga, and modern scientific research has thoroughly confirmed it. Full body control while engaging in this exercise, combined with conscious, multi-stage breathing strengthens all key aspects of the human body, such as:

  • physical fitness;
  • physiology and hormonal regulation;
  • mental and emotional balance.

Yoga strengthens and tones the body, improves the flexibility of muscles and joints, effectively relieves tension and pain, and boosts coordination. The breathing control necessary while exercising, in turn, ensures thorough oxygenation of the internal organs, as well as stabilises the proper regulation of hormones in the blood. And finally, yoga relieves tension, teaches you how to consciously relax, recognise emotions and cope with everyday stress. It often inspires people to give up harmful habits, change their diet, and even improve relationships with other people. In one word, it significantly increases one’s quality of life, as long as it is practised systematically and devotedly.
