Perhaps the original mind/body exercise, Yoga brings the spiritual element to fitness using ancient techniques designed to help center and focus the practitioner using breath control and specific postures in a meditative setting.

- Core strength through bodyweight movements
- Flexibility through strengthening and focused stretching moves
- Stress reduction through whole-body breath awareness
