Health: You can be Yoga-licious!

Yoga harmonizes the body and the mind.

There are several types of yoga but here are a few of the more popular forms:

Hatha - Is a gentle form of yoga and a good beginners class
Vinyasa - A more vigorous, breath-synchronized yoga that is centered around sun salutations
Ashtanga - A powerful form of yoga based on a set series of poses always performed in the same order
Bikram - Commonly referred to as hot yoga because it's practiced in a 95 to 100 degree room, it allows profuse sweating which cleanses the body

Some of the benefits of yoga is that it increases flexibility, massages all of your internal organs and increases lubrication of the joins, ligaments and tendons. Yoga also tones muscles and offers complete detoxification.

It takes some practice so be patient, unlike this short bus rider:
