Yoga is Australia’s preferred cardio, strength and flexibility exercise*. It’s growing popularity is in line with a global rise in participation of the ancient practice.
Yoga’s health benefits are widely recognized and accepted. Doctors routinely suggest their patients take up yoga.
Not everyone is into yoga for yoga’s sake. Some are definitely chasing visually impressive arm balances, however, others (most?) are simply looking to get a little stronger, improve cardiovascular function, get stronger, and get some help with sleep, pain, anxiety, energy levels.
Google “benefits of yoga” and immerse yourself in the +16 million hits. No matter what your current level of fitness or flexibility, you can take up yoga. Chat with your doctor first if you have any serious medical issues.
