Benefits Of Yoga


I have been down for a while and my friend introduced me to some yoga classes.

At first, I felt she wasn't helping and ignored her. But when she asked me to follow her to see a friend; I found myself in a yoga class!

After a little protest, I was forced to join in the exercise! To be honest I wasn't ready to stop after I engaged myself with the basics.

Though, we don't know much about yoga here in Nigeria, it is important we cultivate the attitude of engaging ourselves in it. Its health benefits are numerous and is quite useful to everyone (male, female, young, old).
