Yoga originated in India about five thousand years ago and has since spread all over the world. Many people swear by yoga and it has now become part of their daily or weekly routine. Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.
Yoga is not only seen to help your physical health and strength but also to boost you mentally. Many people use yoga to combat stress and depression and although this may not be scientifically proven, it has been confirmed by many suffers to have helped. Yoga is a way of clearing the mind, slowing down and concentrating on simple movements and to allow you to also concentrate on your breathing.
