Yoga can be beneficial for lots of reasons and many people practice because it helps them relax, find focus, feel centred and connect them with their breathing, but it isn’t just for unwinding. Yoga workouts can target every muscle in the body, it improves circulation and can lengthen and strengthen your muscles.
It’s also easily tailored to the individual, you can take it at your own pace or make it or more difficult and rigorous depending on your needs. Plus most of the basic yoga poses can be done without any equipment and in the comfort of your living room (a good job right now).
