Yoga has been practiced for centuries due to its many health benefits. From improving flexibility to protecting your spine & building muscle strength, regular yoga sessions can help you sleep, boost your immune system, and even provide inner strength. Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, yoga is one activity that works the mind just as much as the body.
Using slow movement and controlled stretches combined with breathing exercises, yoga will de-stress and relax your body. But don’t be fooled – you can still work up a sweat as you complete each challenging yet rewarding sequence of poses.
