Yoga might look like an easy, serene form of exercise, but it’s far more than a few twists and stretches on a mat. Yoga ranges in all difficulty levels and challenges the body as well as the mind.
Yoga is a type of exercise that can be used to strengthen any desired area of your body through a variety of poses and stretches. It aims to promote flexibility and release (getting rid of tension). By practicing yoga, you can relieve stress, gain strength, and have fun all at the same time. The best part is that you can do it anywhere – a local yoga studio, a class at your nearest gym, your house, or even your dorm!
Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, there’s a smartphone app for that. The resources to help you get started are everywhere. You can check your phone, a book, a DVD, or the internet. Yoga is all about availability so that no matter where you go, you can always find a place to practice.
I’m going to start practicing more yoga, are you?
