Wellness – Minute Yoga

Minute Yoga has been incorporated into Team 1676’s Wellness Initiative because of its physical, emotional, and mental benefits. Just one minute of yoga a day can help increase these benefits. The Pascack Pi-oneers use the Calm.com app to increase mindfulness within the team.

Yoga can:

  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase muscle strength and tone
  • Improve respiration, energy, and vitality
  • Help to maintain a balance metabolism
  • Reduce weight
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Improve athletic performance
  • Increase protection from injuries

Dr. Natalie Nevins, an osteopathic physician and yoga instructor, says: “Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration.”
