Yoga is a calming and relaxing routine for those who do not enjoy the rigour of gym life. It is also a great way of getting into shape and keeping your temper under check. "Yoga stretches every inches of your body, helping it relax and toned at the same time." The beginning is always hard, for there will always be a tomorrow that will tempt you to put away sweatpants today. Do yoga everyday and it will lead you towards a fitter tomorrow.
