Can you get a workout doing yoga?


While the point of yoga is not to achieve and hold contorted postures, the physical element of yoga was specifically developed to exhaust the body so that the mind can be clear and relaxed for meditation. While some types of yoga focus on restorative postures that are designed to relax and calm the body, if you want a workout, yoga can also get you sweating. It’s your choice – there are many types of yoga and some are very physically demanding.
