The benefits include stress relief, flexibility, and more.


Whether your primary focus is running, cycling, Pilates, dance, or strength training, Yoga should have a place in your routine. It’s a versatile practice; yoga poses can be either stimulating or calming, especially when paired with proper breathing exercises. To get the most benefits, focus on deep, rhythmic breaths throughout your flow to show your body and mind that you’re comfortable and in control.

Here are three ways you can benefit from making yoga a consistent part of your routine.

1. Hot yoga will make you a better athlete.

Cranking up the heat makes your discomfort threshold spike so you can handle tougher workouts with less struggle. The high temperatures also loosen your muscles, speeding up recovery. Equinox’s hot Yoga Studios are kept between 85 and 90 degrees, the ideal temperature for warming your blood vessels and increasing flexibility. Try Heated Vinyasa Yoga, Heated Yoga Sculpt, Heated Power Yoga, or Heated Slow Flow Yoga.

2. You’ll balance your energy levels.

If you need a caffeine-like energy boost, practice stimulating yoga poses like these backbends or take Power Yoga, either in the morning or mid-day. For a more calming flow, you’ll need restorative yoga poses, like those you’ll do in Yin Yoga. Perform them as part of your relaxed Sunday morning routine or right before bed.

3. Yoga breath work can ease stress.

Whether you’re taking Vinyasa, Alignment Flow, Iyengar, or another type of Yoga, one constant is a focus on the breath. Proper breathing form, which involves deep breaths through your nose, can shift your body into parasympathetic or rest-and-digest mode. You may practice specific breathing exercises in class, such as Nadi Shodhana, to relieve stress.

Even if you consider yourself a seasoned yogi, having an instructor guide you through yoga poses can help you feel truly restored and refreshed. As an Equinox member, you get access to all our expert-led Yoga classes and more. Try a Yoga class at your nearest Equinox today.
