Yoga offers many health benefits for the body, mind and spirit. The misconception is that yoga is based on stretching, but the focus lies heavily in developing flexibility and strength and improving balance. Yoga classes teach postures and poses through movements that are slow, steady and controlled. The goal of yoga practice is to achieve an accurate alignment of each pose and improve stamina.
