Abstract
In recent years, with the rapid development of society, more and more urban women are working harder and harder. In addition to work, in order to relieve stress and maintain health, many urban white-collar women choose yoga to exercise. In this paper, 20 white-collar women in Jinhang Fitness Club were measured for body shape and physical fitness, and then a 24-week yoga training program was conducted on them. After the 24-week yoga training program, the body shape and physical fitness of these subjects were measured again. The results show after the training program: (1) the body shape, the physical quality and the physiological functions of the subjects are significantly better than before; (2) their weight, waist circumference, hip circumference, thigh circumference and other indicators are greatly decreased, which indicates that yoga exercise can improve physical fitness; (3) their 1-minute sit-ups and sitting body flexion scores are enhanced significantly, which proves that yoga practice can really boost waist strength, flexibility; (4) their lung capacity is also improved.
