Yoga is fast becoming a very popular choice of exercise, not only amongst women but men too. With classes that will put your mind and body in a totally calm state and improve your overall strength, I don’t see what’s not to love.
There are many variations of yoga, including different breathing techniques, meditation, stretching and aerial (maintaining balance on a hammock) — it’s a great fitness regime to get into if you’re looking to challenge your body to pose in ways you never thought you were capable of. Not forgetting the beautifully sculpted physique that you’ll achieve from all that discipline.
