Finding the right yoga for you is key to being consistent AND being consistent is key to see physical results... Yet, to applaud yoga for its physical benefits alone would only diminish what this entire system has to offer as a whole! By practicing yoga on a regular basis, you may be surprised to find that you're building much more than a strong, flexible body.
"Americans are usually drawn to yoga as a way to keep fit at first, but the idea behind the physical practice of yoga is to encourage a deeper mind-body awareness," explains New York yoga teacher and author Beryl Bender Birch. "Healing and balancing the physical body helps bring clarity and focus to the mind as well."
