Why you should do yoga?
Nested in Beomeo-dong, Suseong-gu, Daegu, Irina Yoga Studio has been credited for balancing body and mind with its customized yoga programs that have proved effective. “Many modern people unknowingly suffer from bad posture and bad posture affects not only the physical health but also the mind” explains CEO Lee. In fact, Irina Yoga Studio is the sole place where inside flow yoga is being taught in Daegu; inside flow yoga keeps the breathing alongside 4/4 music and does the series of movements; it makes body and breathing as one. “Inside flow yoga is processed rhythmically and the music functions as a storytelling to cure wounded heart of the doer. It is ideal for those with a lot of stress or in need of diet.” Alongside inside flow yoga, Irina Yoga Studio is famous for bamyasi yoga which relaxes the muscles and helps body corrects itself; it is centered on spine balance from which to strengthen core muscles and to ease pains in shoulders, neck and waist. Other notable yoga programs at Irina Yoga Studio include therapy yoga, easy yoga and tool yoga. If you are an officer worker, CEO Lee recommends ‘relax yoga’; you lie down in a room with candles for 60 minutes to relax your whole body. Try it on your way home after work to see the effects of it. If you are outdoor enthusiast, Lee then recommends ‘rooftop yoga’ invented by Lee herself inspired while doing yoga at Bali Island, Indonesia. If you wish to be a yoga instructor, Irina Yoga Studio also runs a number of instructor’s courses as well as workshops by inviting renowned yoga instructors in Korea. Some tips from Lee: 1) do not let yourself eluded by flooding ads about yoga on SNS since many of them seem to value more of sales than the charm of the exercise 2) think first why you need yoga, how you start and where 3) always remember bad posture brings illness to your body and mind.
