The Benefits Of Yoga From The Experts

After feeling stagnant with my regular routine, I decided gave yoga a shot and started attending class.

I had heard that yoga was a great workout for years, but never made going a priority.

6 months later, I’m still surprised by the mental benefits I’ve noticed. More clarity, more calmness, and overall just a better vibe.

This revelation caused me to dig into articles out there about yoga’s benefits beyond just the obvious (like more flexibility).

Below are my favorites from the reading I’ve done.

Namaste and enjoy!
