Health Benefits for New and Experienced Yoga Practitioners

As we embark on our first Yoga 101 series – a four week program, at our clinic’s gym, we wanted to share some of the wellness benefits of yoga.

This helpful infographic from the Huffington Post shows the benefits of yoga after your first class, after months of yoga, and through years of practicing yoga.  So whether you’re looking to stretch out some painful spots, or want to calm anxiety, or improve your long term wellness, yoga can play a positive roll in your health without a prescription.
