A popular falsehood is that yoga is for young slim people who can contort their bodies naturally like a pretzel. This simply not the case. Yoga is beneficial for many of all ages by reducing stress and anxiety, improving flexibility and overall fitness performance. Yoga can also be beneficial for your heart and overall health, assist with weight loss and help with chronic conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis. Yoga also keeps us in tune with ourselves and a feeling of connection with our own bodies.
