I think Yoga is a very healthy sports and it becomes much more popular here. It can not only relax yourself, but also make you slim. Your body will have a good shape and you can set free your stress.

It is a lot like Tai Chi, in that it instructs you had to move and breath at the same time. I really want to take a class to add the sun salutation to my morning strechting.

hi sexycoley, I don't tkink it's slim. It does improve on your body and mental fitness. But i do believe it can complement any slimness program you are on.

it is for health not for slim, yoga keeps our mind, body and soul cool and calm, yoga enhances our breathing systems, it keeps us away from illness, it keep us away from tension, everyone should do yoga atleast half hour daily to be fit, be fit to live long

Hi sexycoley, I used to be infatuated with the idea of adopting the Lotus position and floating around the hose three feet above the floor. That would have been fun, but since it doesn't usually work that way, my interest in Yoga has faded. If anyone can demonstrate shattering a brick with the vibrating palm technique, then my curiosity might once again be aroused. Beyond that, Yoga sounds like an awful lot of effort for precious little reward (a bit like physiotherapy, actually... who thinks up these things?).

There is an incredible amount of reward from yoga. Calmness of mind, flexibilty and if you play any kind of sport you are 80% less likely to be injured, improved balance, a greater awareness of your body, tones and strengthens the whole body etc

Hi, It's nice to be acquainted with the benefits of a particular discipline like Yoga, but I suspect it's one of those practices that need the investment of discretionary time which people generally don't have - and increasingly so with each passing year. Like the alleged chicken and egg paradox - if there's no benefit evident, then a person's unlikely to take the trouble to learn to apply it. P.S. The egg came first...

It does take a while to be able to feel the stretchs properly but you only need to spend about 15-30 minutes a day doing it to keep the flexibility. What I like most is it you feel completely relaxed but with a mental alertness, its hard to describe if you've never felt anything like it.

Whilst yoga may have health benefits it also poses some risks and can lead to back and groin problems all the best urban

Only if you have a bad teacher or if you over stretch, which is your own stupidity.
