Yoga vs. Fitness

Get out of the box: Yoga vs. fitness – Are you achieving your absolute best?

If you would have asked me ten years ago – “Do you prefer yoga or fitness?” I would have said, without hesitation, “yoga”. That’s it, end of story. Fitness wasn’t even on my radar (Ok, maybe for a little while in college I got into circuit training, but it never got very serious.)
