Yoga is a form of exercise that has many great benefits. There are many different types of yoga practices so anyone can start even if you are a beginner. 

You don't need to go to a class either as you can find videos online. With Yoga you don't need much equipment either - just something comfy to wear, space and yoga mat


Some of the physical benefits of yoga include:

-  Lessens chronic pain such as lower back pain and arthritis

As well as the physical benefits yoga is great for your mental health too. Yoga is a great way at relaxing your mind which can ease stress. Stress can have such a negative impact on your body both physically such as aches and pains and mentally. Yoga is also great for helping with anxiety and depression.
