Yoga is an ancient Indian exercise that focuses on mindfulness, meditation, breathing, along with stretching and strength. Many people gravitate toward yoga in order to attain that enviable “yoga body” – long, lithe, and flexible (though yoga is for everyone of all ages, sizes, shapes and genders!), but the benefits go much deeper than that. Yoga is an integrative practice that seeks to find serenity and peace through the movements and poses you hold. People who practice yoga often come out of their daily practice with a deep sense of relaxation, calmness, and connectedness.
