Yoga Poses and Information

Yoga has an incredibly long history. Depending on which historian you believe in, yoga and its poses traces back in India to 1,000 BC - or even much further beyond. Yoga is about following a series of stretching and strength building exercises to help your body stay strong and limber - and also using meditation and other techniques to keep your mind strong. In a modern day where we are worried about obesity, Alzheimers, and other issues, yoga is a perfect solution!

Buy at Art.com If you think Yoga is a boring sit-and-stare-at-the-wall activity, think again. The benefits you can gain from yoga are immense. You learn how to achieve stress relief and calm. You help your shoulders stretch. You build up arm strength. You get a better sense of balance. These simple exercises can help you save yourself from hip injuries, repetitive stress injuries, migraine headaches, and much more! Best of all, you can do quick yoga exercises while standing in line, stuck in a traffic jam, watching TV, and preparing to fall asleep.

I highly recommend learning the basics of yoga and finding ways to sneak them into your daily routine!
