Here are some of the top indoor activities in the winter season for women.
As they say, yoga is not only great for the body, but also for the soul. The benefits of yoga are therefore not only physical, but also mental. First of all, yoga strengthens our musculoskeletal system and therefore not only our muscles, but also our joints and ligaments due to the amount of stretching involved. Contrary to what most people believe, yoga is a great workout and a great activity to tone our body and build muscles. What’s more, Yoga is a bit like meditation, and is therefore a great way to turn our minds off.
One of the greatest ways to tone our legs is to go spinning. Spinning helps us to build up our muscle endurance and expand our lung capacity. It is of course a cardiovascular exercise and helps to burn fat, and increase our heart rates. This exercise, just like yoga, can help in improving posture and is therefore beneficial for those of us suffering from long office hours and a bad posture in our office chairs.
Another great indoor activity is swimming. Swimming contributes to the alleviation of arthritis symptoms by stretching the sore joints and therefore improves flexibility. Swimming is also an aerobic activity and therefore also strengthens the heart and additionally relieves asthmatic symptoms. For those of us interested in losing weight, this exercise is the biggest calorie burner out there.
Whether Zumba, or Hip Hop, Aerobics, dancing is probably one of the most fun activities out there. The cool thing about it as that learning choreography is a kind of training for our brains because of the process of memorization, and of course the improvement of physical co-ordination skills as well. Most dancing activities involve a great deal of aerobic activity, because usually there is a whole lot of movement involved, which makes this workout great fun, a great for our hearts.
