Benefits of power yoga

Many yoga postures can be suitable for different individuals who belong to different physique, age, ethnicity and genders. You may be a teen, a middle-aged mom, a bodybuilder, athlete, granny or a “not so flexible” guy. You can easily learn and practise yoga.

Yoga helps in revitalizing your mind and body. Therefore, I recommend everyone to practise yoga on a regular basis. It is not always necessary that you should do it for hours, even a twenty minutes work can be good enough.
