Yoga is an ancient discipline. It means union or connection. It includes breath control, meditation, and learning specific postures. There is no certain definition for yoga however; Shelia Levenhagen, a HomeFit yoga instructor, simply describes it as freeing.
We live in a day of schedules, routines, and calendar reminders. Our lives are planned out to the minute to fit everything in. Unfortunately this means that we often find ourselves doing the same things day in and day out. We need variety. Not only will variety keep us from getting bored, but it will also make us healthier!
Yoga has a lot of biases and as such, many people are skeptical to try it. But yoga, like those who participate in it, comes in many varieties. Yoga can be slow and meditative, fast-paced, precise, predictable, variable, and much, much more. Because there are so many different types of yoga, there are many possible benefits as well.
