Amazing Benefits for Working Out In a Group

Studies have shown that group exercise has a lot of benefits and that it’s much more effective than individual workouts. These are only some of the many advantages of working out in a group.

It’s Fun

Exercising with a group of people is like a mini party. Whether they’re your best friends or complete strangers, group classes are always fun which makes those hard workouts much easier.

We have the relationship with others that we are having with ourselves.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A big takeaway from @stralayoga Berlin 300+ was real self-care, taking responsibility for your self, in relationship with those you guide, and of course everyone. You can't be one person some of the time, and flip a switch to be an angel when you want to be perceived that way. How we are is how we are. You can't put on a yoga costume, or extra accessories to mask your energy. What we see is you. What we feel is how you feel about yourself. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This is really great to experience and man it will hit you heavy when you do. What are your habits that hold you back? Where do you hold tension you don't need? Your main job is to take responsibility for yourself. Have compassion for yourself to have compassion for others. Move in alignment with yourself to guide others to move better. Be moveable in order to achieve. Soften in order to be strong. Make a good connection with yourself to make a good connection with others.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Stop the cycle of abuse by using discernment and not going along with systems and leaders that abuse. ⁠⠀ ⠀ We are all leaders and followers. Improve how we are and we will move in a great direction, together.⠀ ⁠⠀ Your time is now, always. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Next stop London for a weekend of ease, moving in alignment with our self, and dropping the habits that no longer serve us. Aug 17-18. 👆🏼 Link in bio if you feel pulled to join. ⁠🌱⠀ ⁠⠀ #stralayoga #yogalife #londonyoga ⁠#stralaberlin #yogatraining ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

Working out by yourself can become pretty lonely, which is why many people lose motivation after a while. Being surrounded by people who have the same goal as you can help you stay motivated through hard times.

Social Bonding

Chances are that many of those people you can meet in group classes have the same interests as you. This is a great opportunity to socialize, meet interesting people and make new friends.
