Yoga is a centuries-old practice famed for its physical and spiritual soothing and healing properties.
Its benefits include better metabolism, weight loss, increased flexibility, and reduction of stress.
Considering that physical activity, engagement in spirituality, and low-level of stress are three of the 9 key components to living a longer, healthier, and happier life, yoga’s advantages cannot be overstated.
