A Woman Discovers the Benefits of Yoga

A middle-aged woman writes about how yoga changed her body and her mind in this great article.

... after just a short while in yoga, I've realized more physical benefits than I gained through all those other efforts combined. My once-flabby upper arms are strong and lean. ... I stand taller and hold my shoulders up and back instead of slumping down and inward. My step is lighter, and my "core" abdominal muscles -- though still lined with a fair share of chub -- are damned strong.

Who, Me? A Yogi?
