Yoga has proven to be a great method of stress relief and a wonderful exercise for those looking to stretch their muscles, strengthen their core, and feel more centered. While you can certainly do yoga at home with any number of helpful apps or youtube videos, there’s something to be said for attending a class with an in-person professional.
