Why Yoga Should be Your New Year’s Resolution

Still making New Year’s resolutions? Or setting goals for 2015? According to Time Magazine, yoga should be on your list. While it’s widely recognized that one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, the health and physical benefits are many. In fact, new research as reported by Time puts yoga on the same benefit level as cycling or brisk walking! The relaxation techniques in yoga can lessen chronic pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome. Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia. Other physical benefits include:
