Brighten your day with yoga. A great complement to resistance exercise, yoga incorporates meditation and relaxation techniques. The practice promotes physical strength and mental clarity, which is why studies have found that regular yoga practice can reduce stress and anxiety.

One study in particular showed that individuals who participated in yoga experienced improvements in mood and decreased levels of depression and stress. Yoga also promoted a sense of hopefulness while also increasing flexibility. Other research has shown that yoga may benefit cognitive function and memory.

While it has its benefits, you shouldn’t practice yoga on the same day that you do any resistance exercise. It’s best to wait anywhere from 24 to 48 hours, depending on the intensity of your resistance training, before taking a yoga class.
