Health Tip: Benefits of Yoga

Yoga's goal is to challenge yourself physically without feeling overwhelmed. The practice has been noted to provide both mental and physical benefits.

These benefits include:

  • A better body image.
  • Mindful eating habits.
  • Reduced tension, stress and anxiety.
  • Increased physical fitness.

If you have any health concerns about your ability to practice yoga, check with your doctor before starting a program.
