  • When we think of yoga, the first things that come to mind are the numerous contorted positions.  Yoga is primarily a philosophy and discipline and over the years, the physical aspect of yoga has been successful in helping its practitioners achieve as sense of serenity through its calming effects on the mind and body.

    Yoga has gone a long way from being simply a body exercise.  Nowadays, it has become a series of fun activities for kids and moms as a form of interactive body exercise .
     

    Different sets of fun postures
