When the yoga enters your life, it tends to stay forever. Are many celebrities you know and that have made this discipline a fundamental pillar of his life, from actresses like Elsa Pataky, presenting as Pilar Rubio, or even the queen Letizia. One of them, yogi confessed, is Jessica Bielfan of this discipline to improve their well-being. So much so, that it has embarked on a collaboration with the firm Gaiam for co-designing a capsule collection of sportswear.
A choice that is not casual, since the actress practices yoga every two days. This collaboration gives you a good opportunity to make his / her mantra: “The fitness and well-being are important to me, have been a part of my life”, he explained. Just a few days ago, I noted in your account of Instagram: “The holidays are for giving, but we often forget ourselves. So, why don’t you ‘give’ something to speed up your goals for the new year?” Their goal is clear: encourage your followers to join the practice of this discipline.
The exercise as a philosophy of life
As confirmed by the actress WWD, “I grew up outdoors playing football, and was a gymnast, so this is who I really am”. Yes, as the years have gone by, has had to renounce high-impact exercises and have adapted their routines to their age.
“I started practicing yoga about 10 years ago through a close friend who was an instructor. At first I was like, ‘I can Not do all of those poses crazy’, and I still can’t, but I’m not competing with anyone. I want to demystify yoga and bring it to more men and women”, explained the actress, who has no doubt become a promoter of a healthy lifestyle, she herself works with her personal trainer Jason Walsh.
Strength, flexibility and mental balance
Biel takes advantage of as well the multiple benefits of the yoga practice. “It improves our strength, flexibility and mental balance, helping you get in shape through movements combined with meditation,” he says Toñi Leal, specialist in wellness and beauty hotel Royal Hideaway Sancti Petri. At the physical level, the main benefit of yoga is increased flexibility. But not only that, with your practice you’ll achieve a mental peace and relaxation that will help you to get rid of stress and connect the mind with the body through meditation and breathing.
Yoga not only improves our immune system, but it also eliminates abdominal fat, lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of diabetes, and helps to mitigate back pain, sciatica, or those associated with fibromyalgia. And in addition enhances our self-esteem with each posture or asana that we do. A final detail: keep in mind that yoga is not an exercise that ends when you go to put your street clothes after class, it is much more than a set of asana, and for many people ends up becoming an entire philosophy of life.
