Yoga is a great way to help strengthen and tone your body. What sets yoga apart from other forms of exercise is the use of breath, awareness of the body and intention. Before you begin, set a clear intention for your practice. Use this intention to draw strength from during the challenging moments you may face. As you practice, use your breath to help you with the movements. Vinyasa, is a form of yoga that links breath to movement. Linking breath and movement not only helps your body move more smoothly through the postures, but it also has a very calming effect on your mind. This allows you to move with focus and ease.
