Associated with relaxation and mindfulness, yoga not only benefits your mind, but also your body. According to the American Osteopathic Association, some of these benefits include strong cardio health, injury protection and a balanced metabolism.

There are various different types of yoga, ranging from Bikram to Iyengar and prenatal to restorative. Each type serves a different purpose, so you should try a variety of classes to discover what best suits you.
