Living With Yoga 


In researching Yoga, it seemed like the "miracle" workout. Most appealing of all, when done properly, the effects may include stress relief, above all else. Stress is the cause, or at least a contributing factor, of many diseases and conditions, from chronic illness to physical wearing. With a sales pitch like that, it is no wonder that methods of stress relief have some into high demand, considering the emphasis society today places on external beauty. However, if a person feels well mentally and emotionally, the positive results also are evident externally. Yoga tries to achieve that standard of feeling well, mind and body alike. But like any sport, Yoga must be practiced to achieve the most effective results. Chances are that if a person is really stressed out, it may prove difficult to find the time to perform such activities. But there is a wealth of information on various routines and methods of practicing Yoga, including ways to budget time spent doing Yoga, available to any interested person via the internet, books, magazines, and even clinics. "Where there’s a will, there’s a way." The attitude about Yoga is best described by John Schumaker, "Whatever the question . . . the answer is . . . more yoga" ( ).
