Do you incorporate yoga into your weekly workout routine? If so, then you probably already know just how beneficial it can be. Besides helping you maintain flexibility and balance, yoga can also help people focus, relax, and destress.
If you aren’t attending a class, however, whether in-person or virtual, you’ll want to be sure you’re safely practicing at home.
