Yoga Q&A

Yoga is another big trend in Malaysia and I’ve been meaning to talk about yoga for a while now…and yes, some of you have been asking about yoga and stuff related to it. Following is a summary of questions I terima daripada En Zaidi and others on yoga:

  • Is it OK kalau kita workout after yoga class?
  • How to put YOGA in our workout schedule?
  • OK, can we do YOGA masa our rest day?
  • Can yoga help me lose weight atau kurangkan berat badan?
  • Apakah kelebihan yoga?

Is it OK kalau kita workout after yoga class?

I’m gonna say yes and no here. Say you are weight training, yes a little stretching is advisable to help the muscles relax and cool down but kalau anda ingin go through an intense 60min yoga session, then I would say no. If you do it after a cardio workout than yup…go ahead.

How to put YOGA in our workout schedule?

Saya akan assume that we are talking about beginner or intermediate yoga. If you can allocate satu sessi berasingan untuk yoga, than that obviously is ideal. Kalau tak boleh, than anytime will do. I personally would rather place towards the end of the workout supaya I can go home feeling relaxed and easy.

OK, can we do YOGA masa our rest day?

Sure boleh but that it would be a rest day la kan. Rest day supposed to be relaxing for you both mentally and physically..that means no physical activity to allow the joints and muscles to recuperate and rehat.

Can yoga help me lose weight atau kurangkan berat badan?

Lets just say its better than doing nothing at all but berbanding conventional cardio exercises like jogging or aerobics, yoga kurang berkesan dari segi mengurankan berat badan. Yoga is a great form of exercise with the following benefits:

Benefits of Yoga?

Apakah kelebihan dan kebaikan yoga?

  • Great to relieve stress, depression, anxiety and fear.
  • Various physiological, psychological and biochemical benefits
  • Helps to improve body posture.
  • Improves blood flow, good to prevent heart diseases.
  • Improves flexibility, strengthen joints
  • Can help you lose weight.

I personally wouldn’t do yoga for weight loss but mainly for its physiological, psychological and biochemical benefits. Again exercise is a personal thing….so should yoga. Some people swear by it others don’t. Same goes for any exercise really.
