There are many styles of yoga, try a few to figure out what you like. Personally, I love “hot” or Bikram Yoga. It is a series of 26 poses, performed in a 60-90 minute class in a room heated to 105 degrees. I love it because not only do you get all the benefits listed above, but you get a good sweat on!
