When most of us hear the word Yoga, we either thank god we’re doing it, or if we’re not, we know we should be! But why? What makes yoga so special that 20 million Americans are practicing and another 60 million say they want to? Yoga literally means yoking together or uniting. The unity we’re talking about specifically is among the mind, body, and spirit.
There are many types of yoga out there including Vinyasa, Hatha and Somatic just to name a few. Yoga does not require a gym and depending on the type of yoga you are interested in pretty much any body type and age can access the gifts that yoga has to offer.
