Before I developed a hiatal hernia, one of my favorite things in the world was yoga. I would carve 30-45 minutes out of my day, 5 days a week, to enjoy a session. I used a Book by Raquel Welch to learn the poses and Raquel opened up the wonderful world of yoga for me.
Not only did I practice yoga in my “carved out” time, I’d also find myself doing the poses wherever I happened to be – in the kitchen while watching the stove, in the yard in between feeding cats and filling bird feeders, while watching old movies… anytime I wanted a great stretch!
Yoga isn’t just enjoyable, it’s extremely relaxing. Plus, learning new things is great for the mind.
While the infographic below is titled, “The Benefits of Yoga for Addiction Recovery” and while it would, I’m sure, be wonderful for those overcoming an addiction, make no mistake about it – yoga is beneficial for everyone.
