Yoga

Yoga is a surprisingly effective cardiovascular exercise and caloric burner that offers many health benefits. It is one of the very few efficient forms of exercise that creates minimal impact and carries minimal risk of injury when practiced properly. The asana, or poses, practiced in hatha (physical) yoga stimulate the affected muscles more completely and across a greater range of motion than such exercises as running or weightlifting. The result is a higher calorie burn and greater increase in muscle tone, without the loss of flexibility that can result from some exercise routines.
