There are so many benefits of exercise, these are just a few of them! Whether it is getting on your Pogamat, taking a walk or lifting weights, by getting your heart rate up for 30 minutes a day, you will notice dramatic results in your mood, energy levels, and more!
Feeling tired? Do some yoga, P90X, or push-ups on your Pogamat to give your energy level a boost. Working out in the morning is the most effective way to feel energized all day, as exercise releases endorphins into your bloodstream. Even 15-30 minutes on your Pogamat during the middle of the day will keep you going when you feel your energy level taking a dive.
When you exercise regularly, your heart and cardiovascular system will start to function more effectively. The heart builds up less plaque and becomes more efficient the more you work out. When the heart becomes stronger, it pumps more blood per beat, so at rest, the heart rate is lower. That means the activities of your daily life will become easier!
Research shows that exercise can slow or help prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis (bone loss), and loss of muscle mass.
Those who exercise are more productive at work. Increased serotonin levels and energy levels leads to mental clarity. When you are feeling distracted and unproductive at work, take a break and spend some time exercising outdoors or on your Pogamat to stimulate your brain!
Elevate your mood, keep depression at bay and relax yourself by doing 30 minutes of exercise a day. The serotonin that is released when you workout will stay with you throughout the day to help you stay calm in stressful situations, too!

Picture this. You are in yoga class and the teacher guides you into a side plank pose known in Sanskrit as Vasisthasana. The class is heated and you feel the sweat pooling beneath your palm. Your supporting hand begins slipping and suddenly you feel your supporting foot beginning to slide off your yoga mat. Your back [...]
