Yoga is an ancient practice that had gained massive popularity in the western world. With that popularity has come variation upon variation—some a bit more unique than others!

One of my favorite things about yoga is how incredibly versatile it is. Yoga can help you build physical strength, increase mental clarity, get rid of stress, heal injuries, and more. Plus, with these classes, it’s a lot more fun than a boring old jog on the treadmill.
