Because we're human, we can't help but look for the perfect versions of almost everything. As an example, think about the act of doing yoga. After learning about all the great ways yoga is good for your health, you'll probably want to get even more out of it. To do this, you can work out your whole body with resistance bands.

Resistance bands are a great way to add some oomph to your yoga practice, and they can also add something fun to your routine. Injury risk decreases when you exercise with a broader range of motion. This is how movements done with resistance bands are naturally safer than using free weights or other weight machines.

Are you prepared to start introducing resistance bands into your yoga regimen? Begin by performing these three moves.

  1. Come into Warrior 1 position, lunging forward with both feet while keeping your hips in a squared-off place. Put a resistance band around your hands where your fingers would be. 

    To begin, position your elbows perpendicular to your torso and tucked into your sides. Bring your hands in front of your waist with your palms facing inward.

    Put the palm of one hand flat on your chest and tuck the elbow of the other hand into your side. One rep should be done with the opposite elbow fully extended, with the resistance being felt as the arm approaches a parallel position with the back leg.

    Set a goal for yourself to complete anywhere between five and ten repetitions on one side before switching. 

  2. Put your hands and knees on the ground and your shoulders on top of your hands. This is the tabletop pose. 

    To acquire the most out of your resistance band, you should stretch it between the balls of both feet. While keeping your upper body in the same position, carefully straighten one of your legs and elevate the foot of that leg off the ground.

    Maintain this position for a moment, bend your knee and carry out the same motion on the other side. Try to finish as many repetitions as possible on one leg before moving on to the other. A fantastic exercise for your abdominal muscles and lower body!

  3. Resistance bands will become your new best friends if you are working toward sculpting your upper body. Including these as part of your yoga practice can significantly assist in toning your arms. 

    Assume a lunge position similar to that of a Warrior 2, with one foot pointing forward and the other foot fixed firmly on the ground in a place that is perpendicular to the front foot. Wrap a resistance band around your back foot, then grab the band with your back hand while maintaining a straight arm position in front of your front leg.

    You should be able to bring your elbow up to a 90-degree angle after pulling up on the resistance band. After completing each pull-up, pause for a brief period at the top of the movement before lowering yourself to the starting position.

    How many repetitions are you capable of before you have to alter the position of your legs and start working out the arm on the other side of your body?

Conclusion

Resistance bands can be a great addition to your yoga practice. It provides extra challenge and resistance to help you deepen your poses and improve your strength and flexibility. 

When choosing a resistance band, it's essential to consider the size and resistance level that best suits your needs. Once you have your band, there are a variety of yoga poses you can do with it, from the ones we’ve shown above to more advanced ones. 

With some training, you'll get the most out of your resistance band and enjoy all the benefits of yoga.
