Yoga is often derided as a feminine activity, with little to no potential to getting you fit. It’s also associated with numerous stereotypes, and seen as boring, which puts off the majority from giving it a try. These are all false, of course.

Yoga is a highly complex physical activity that can be both relaxing and vigorous. There are a variety of categories, from hatha, vinyasa, bikram and such, with an uncountable number of poses as well as breathing techniques to learn. Aside from the well-known benefit of helping you achieve some inner peace, going to yoga classes can also help people with chronic pain, especially those aches that go hand-in-hand with a desk-bound job.
