The two main unifying practices in yoga are mind to body and body to breath.
Yoga has so many wonderful benefits, such as improving your strength, flexibility and mental wellbeing, just to name a few. Anyone who has attended a hatha or ashtanga yoga class will attest that it’s not an easy form of exercise, and that the sweat can still certainly flow in these classes. It's a practice of concentrated breathing, where poses demand both physical and mental effort. And then at the end of every practice, you get to bathe in the glow of Savasana.
