I’m over at Red and Honey talking about the benefits of yoga. While POP Pilates is my daily exercise of choice, I do enjoy a good yoga flow every now and then. In the post I go through a number of different types of yoga, 20 physical and mental benefits of practicing yoga, and all the different options for where and how to start practicing yoga as a beginner.
From the post:
The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root “yuj,” which means “to yoke” the spirit and physical body together.
