Why yoga?

Yoga is aimed to unite the mind, the body, and the spirit. Yoga helps you become more aware of your body’s posture, alignment and patterns of movement. Yoga makes the body more flexible and helps you relax even in the midst of a stress stricken environment. Yoga helps you to feel fitter, be more energetic, be happier and peaceful.
