Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga may reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate.
There are many styles, forms and intensities of yoga. Hatha is one of the most common styles of yoga, and beginners may like its slower pace and easier movements. Prenatal yoga might help you prepare for labor and promote your baby's health. For animal lovers, there are even goat yoga classes.
Hot yoga has become one of the hottest fitness trends of the past decade. It's a vigorous form of yoga performed in a very warm, humid studio. Hot yoga is not for everyone. The intensity of the workout and the hot temperatures could cause heat-related illness.
