Yoga - A Timeless Form Of Exercise With so many different options available to the person who is looking to keep fit, and more being added every day, it is something of an irony that one of the oldest ways of keeping trim and flexible remains one of the most popular. Yet that is exactly the case where yoga is concerned, and its popularity does not look like waning any time soon. What could be the reason for this popularity? Well, there are a few. For one thing, yoga is very effective. It is a form of exercise that really causes the devotee to develop their core strength. This is a key point of yoga that is reflected in another highly popular form of keep-fit exercise that was developed many years ago -–Pilates. Once you have boosted your core strength, everything else becomes a lot easier to handle – and you will find yourself getting into shapes that you never thought you would deliberately. Using yoga to get fit is certainly a canny move. Its benefits, aside from increased flexibility, are ones which never would have crossed your mind unless you really stopped to think about it. The aspect of breath and 1 muscle control, for example, has all sorts of beneficial knock-on effects which will have genuine practical uses – and it doesn’t need to stop you trying other forms of keep-fit either. In fact, it tends to enhance whatever other forms you decide to use. It’s a little known fact that may or may not stay that way. (AH/AH) 2
