What Yoga can do for you...
Researchers at the University of California at Davis examined the relationship between yoga and fitness by testing the muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility of 10 college students who conducted 4 sessions of yoga each week. These sessions included 10 minutes of breathing exercises, 15 minutes of warm-up, 50 minutes of yoga poses, and 10 minutes of meditation. After 8 weeks, the students' muscular strength has increased by 31%, endurance increased by 57%, and flexibility by as much as 188%.
