“Yoga is about stretching and breathing
exercises,” said Branco. “Anyone of any age can perform
yoga exercises, always ‘listening’ to your body and
performing the stretches and exercises as your body
allows.” The stretching and breathing exercises are
performed both on a mat or blanket, and standing up.
Participants go at their own pace.
According to Branco, when relaxation is
promoted to the body, ones natural body chemistry is
then enhanced, improving mental and physical fitness.
