The Ashtanga method tends to produce internal heat and a purifying sweat to detoxify your muscles and organs. You will notice improved circulation and you might even feel a little nauseous or heady at first.
Yoga can heal you when other exercises can just make you stressed. It depends on the level. This workout will help you detoxify, listen to your body, send oxygen to all the body?s tissue and enhance a state of serenity. Yoga helps to clear your mind for days after you workout. You will learn to love this calm state in your mind. You will crave it.
