Hi Marlynn,

Thanks for writing and sharing this post.

I agree yoga is incredibly good for the body and mind. I always feel so much better after my morning yoga routine.

And I always encourage all of my friends and family members to start doing yoga.

Will definitely be sharing this post on my site, Fitwirr.
