Yoga is a mind body exercise that combines physical activity, controlled breathing and mental rest.
Yoga offers a whole lot of benefits in curing and preventing health problems. One of the major health issue we all face today is “stress”. Studies have shown that a little bit of yoga in the morning or any part of the day can help minimize stress and increase productivity.
