Benefits of Yoga for Truckers

Yoga for Truckers: 60 Benefits

Yoga for Truckers: 60 Benefits.

Yoga has been around for more than 5,000 years, but yoga has transformed into many things over the last decade.

So what is yoga?

Yoga to some is exercise and stretching.

Yoga to others is quiet time, and relaxation.

And to others yoga looks like a contortion practice that they will never be able to achieve.  


To me, yoga is a lifestyle. An opportunity to get quite, move your body, and listen something I believe many of us are lacking and craving in this overstimulated world.

For the average trucker, who couldn’t use a little time to stretch, relax and decompress?

Let’s not over think the opportunity yoga has to offer you. While out on the road, movement can be limited and stress can be high. So yoga could be a natural solution to both. Time to decompress and breath all the while stretching and meeting some of the daily movement requirements the body requires.

Mother Trucker Yoga isn’t fancy yoga. And it’s no where complicated. Mother Trucker Yoga is simple easy moves that directly target a truckers biggest concerns while sneaking in some much needed stress relief, breathing and enhanced sleeping opportunities.

Because honestly, who out there doesn’t want to feel at least a little better than they currently do. What if 3-5 minutes could make all the difference. And when you do it regularly imagine how you could feel then?
