Yin Yoga - Restorative Yoga is so good for stress relief and weight loss. Definitely a great, gentle way to start as a beginner with yoga poses, renewing your practice or just adding into your weekly routine.
The benefits of yoga are truly something you will not get with other kinds of workouts and exercise routines. The benefits stem from within and make their way outward. There is no other workout that is rewarding from all angles.
