Yoga for Every Body Type
Going to yoga twice a week can be great fun. Fancy leggings, coconut water, and a healthy glow are some enjoyable benefits.

However, the greater benefit is that the lessons you learn on the mat in yoga practice can follow you in daily life. 

If you've never taken a yoga class or performed a certain type of yoga practice, it can seem intimidating.

Don’t be discouraged from trying yoga by the fitness stereotype. Stop being afraid of other people. You don’t know the other people in the class, so there’s no need to size them up. You’re there to learn. No one should hate on you for wanting to learn, no matter what your insecurities tell you. Find a way to love yourself and allow yourself to reap the perks yoga provides.

Everyone wants to feel good. Stretching your muscles, relaxing your body and standing taller can motivate your yoga pursuit.

But, it’s also okay if you discover yoga is not for you. Be sure to align your motivation with your fitness pursuits.

Listen as yoga instructor Jessamyn Stanley joins Dr. Holly Lucille to inspire you to earn for the benefits of yoga.
