What Can Yoga do for You
The effects and benefits of yoga have been well documented going way beyond any other exercise. So many times we think of exercise as something that has to be stressful or exhausting (aka "no pain no gain") and yet recent studies have shown that extended periods of cardio exercise makes the body age at a faster rate. Yoga incorporates stretching, aerobics, weight lifting (working with your own body weight), balance, stress relief, and at the same time bringing all of these workouts into harmony in each individual.
Yoga can also be adapted to how you feel that day. IF you are feeling under the weather the exercise can be slowed down to be nourishing and healing or on days that you are feeling in top form the same yoga practice can be tailored to meet your energy
And everyone can practice yoga!
