Everything You’ve Wanted to Know About Yoga But Were Too Afraid To Ask

Everyone from your dentist to your mother seems to be doing some kind of yoga these days. You are perhaps intrigued, but where do you start? And what does all of it mean? Yoga literally means “Union” the connection of the mind, body, and breath. The Vinyasa Style, popularized by celebrities, gyms, and Madonna’s incredible biceps, links movement (poses) with the breath. There are a hundred different poses, each one asking the body to move or pause in a way that builds muscle, while engaging her to stretch and lengthen simultaneously. Combined with a clear, calming, and energizing breath, the body finds movement, the mind finds stillness, and the practice leads not only to an improvement of your entire physical being, but to a state of mindful bliss. Why not give that a try?
