Go gaga for Yoga

The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means "to join" or "to yoke".

Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit.

Mental health and physical health are deeply connected, and yoga is a great way to work on both! So why not put down the book and give yourself a stretch!
