Yoga for the Traders body and mind
Does or has anyone do YOGA for the traders body and mind?
There are multiple threads with yoga input from a few posters but my searches show no thread completely dedicated to it. Admins move if needed.
I can really see myself doing YOGA as a regular part of my weekly routine(may 3x week) if and when I commit to full time trading. I still do a lot of usual guy exercise routines, but I am digging the YOGA for trader discipline and trader health(longevity).
I really like how it releases a lot of the body that gets bound up from trading.
Certain yoga types are great for the mind as well.
Physical benefits include but not relegated to - Body control, breath control(autonomic nervous system), isometric strength, pre-hab, rehab.
Some teachers and places can get a bit spiritual and hokey, but the number of practitioners and places allow you to be selective for what is right for you.
A big side benefit is there is usually a disproportionate number of young in shape females at certain places.
