As I talked about in the first article of this series, yoga is a form of exercise that incorporates flexibility.

Some common benefits of yoga include increased flexibility, relaxing of the muscles, better sleep, manages stress, and improves balance. As with most exercises, yoga doesn’t just improve your physical state, it also is very beneficial to your mind. It will help with your overall well being, and is a perfect way to start or end your day. Yoga is something that anyone can do, no matter your level of difficulty.
