Yoga's 10,000 year long pedigree has almost nothing to do with today’s fleeting fascination with fitness fads and everything to do with the practice’s continued ability to provide undeniable results decade after decade, century after century. In other words, it's stood the test of time for a reason: it works. But, how, exactly, does it work? We're going to explore the benefits of yoga in a three part series with the aim of helping you understand the power of this practice, and why you should do it.

Most of us have already heard the usual virtues of a regular yoga practice: increased strength and flexibility, reduced risk of injury and mental and physical stress, weight loss, increased focus, improved sleep, and -- as a result of many of these perks -- decreased risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. But like we said, you've probably heard all about these frequently touted benefits. What we want to discuss is the lesser known (but equally important) advantages of yoga.

Yoga for All

Yoga is a holistic practice, so you're not just focusing on developing your mind or body, but both. The result is an almost instantly visible elevation of your mental and physical health. Yes, even after just one session -- and that's what we're going to discuss today: the easy accessibility of the yoga practice.

There are a lot of types of exercises that claim that anyone of any fitness level can do them, but arguably, there isn't a single type that can back that claim up like yoga. It’s not just adults in good physical health that can enjoy the rewards of yoga.

  • Babies and children can benefit from yoga
  • Pregnant women can benefit from yoga
  • The elderly can benefit from yoga
  • People with serious mental or physical diseases can benefit from yoga
  • People recovering from massive injuries can benefit from yoga

More importantly, all these people cando yoga.

Beginner Exercise for Actual Beginners

Unlike stepping into a cross-fit studio or starting a running regime at a beginner level, where you may spend days recovering from that first session, the beginner level reallyisbeginner. You’re likely to feel energized from your initial encounter with beginner yoga, as opposed to feeling crippled to the point of never wanting to try it again. This is because yoga encourages you to work at your own pace, and to honor yourself and your body above everything else. It’s a practice that asks that you explore the boundaries of your comfort zone, and push them gently and mindfully. Yoga is not a shock to your system: it’s a pleasant acclimatization into increased physical and mental awareness and power.

This means that while you may have good reason not to step into an advanced Vinyasa Ashtanga yoga class, you have no good reason not to do some kind of yoga. And there are many kinds.

Which one is right for you?

That’s what we’re going to talk about tomorrow!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
