Our yoga experience

Why we chose yoga and the impact it had on us

We chose yoga because it is fun, exciting, and a great way to relax your body and sore muscles. We completed 3 DVD's on yoga over the course of 5 weeks. Yoga impacted us in such a great way that we recommend it to all ages and is a great work out for everyone. Yoga helped with mental and physical stress relieving and made your body feel good after the workout.

We tried Yoga, Zumba, Pilates and kick boxing. We found that yoga was the most beneficial and relaxing workout out of the options we had so we decided to base our visual aid on the topic of Yoga.
