Originating in India and believed to have been developed around the sixth and fifth centuries BC, yoga has been slowly integrated into the Western world and is now a popular form of exercise, known primarily for improving flexibility, strength and posture. Each yoga pose focuses on a different muscle, building strength all over your body and increasing your bodily awareness. The breathing techniques required to master the art of yoga have a relaxing, meditative effect and yoga has been proven to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate, which is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke sufferers.
