Yoga for Strength

Again and again yoga is classified as a sport for flexibility. This is not any wonder as there are often people with extreme flexibility who give yoga as a reason for their abilities. There are however rarely people who declare that they gained their strength and muscle mass through yoga – although the number of people including yoga into their exercise program is increasing steadily.

The reason for this interest is the discovery of yoga as workout in the west. You do not need any machines, no weights, just your own body. You yourself are enough to strengthen any of your body muscles.

The exercises below give you the possibility to work on your biceps, triceps and quadriceps, to train your arm muscles, your thighs and calves and also strengthen your neck and shoulder. Strong arms to lift weight, strong legs to carry yourself or to jump high. Of course you will also find abdominal muscle exercises.
