Yoga to Feed Your Mind and Body

Yoga is used as a means for increased health, strength and flexibility, especially of the spine. This is accomplished primarily through a series of physical postures called 'asanas' which fall under the category of yoga known as Hatha yoga, as well as various deep breathing exercises called 'pranayama'. Pranayama induces a feeling of calm and peace while oxygenating the blood and teaching people to breathe more deeply. Americans, in particular, tend to be shallow breathers, which is probably due to the mostly sedentary life style that many of us have.  The library has a wealth of material about yoga including books and DVDs.
