Hot yoga 101: Everything to know, bring, prepare yourself for -- before your first class
Regardless of whether you’re trying to tone your muscles, shed a few pounds before bathing suit season, get stronger or healthier overall or increase your flexibility, most doctors and health experts would likely agree: yoga is truly an incredible workout.
Yoga can benefit cancer survivors
Yoga has been in the spotlight showing positive benefits for cancer survivors. One of the major concerns that cancer survivors may experience long after treatment is over is lack of energy and fatigue. When studied with a group of breast cancer survivors, those who used yoga had a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, improved energy levels and mood. Next time you see your health care provider, ask if yoga is a safe option for you. If you have never tried yoga, begin by exploring classes offered in your health care center or community center.
