    I started a Pilates class and I love it. I feel more flexible and steady and stronger. I breathe better. I would think yoga would provide all this too. Go for it, it is free and you will be doing yourself a big favor.

    I also do Pilates and recently added yoga. It is fun, and my flexibility has greatly increased.

    I recently bought a Yoga book and instructional video. I have enjoyed doing it. It really does increase flexibility and makes you feel better. I wish I could fit an actual class into my schedule, but not at this time.

    I have done yoga in the past and absolutely loved it!!! If they are free then go for it and purchase a good mat!! I am currently playing indoor soccer so I can't fit it in, but it;s great for the flexibility which comes in handy!!

    I take yoga classes twice a week and definately recommend them. It increases flexibility, and to me is very relaxing and stress relieving.

    A good wellness program includes strengthening, cardio and flexibility.

    I love yoga! Do it!

    Love yoga. Go whenever I can. One of the things it helps me with is correcting my nurse's slouch.

    I also use yoga to practice breathing and focusing my mind, which helps keep me organized at work.

    I also think i thelps me strengthen and protect my back.

    Can't think of a better exercise routine for a nusre. Do it!

    Hey, I've done yoga. I was more flexible, my thighs were stronger and my arms were toner also. My posture also improved. Unfortunately, my night schedule made it difficult to continue. I really enjoyed it at the time.

    I enjoy Yoga. Can't seem to fit classes into my schedule but bought a Reebok book with video and audio tapes that came with a mat, blocks and some other stuff. I really like it.

    I have Multiple sclerosis so it really helps with my muscle spasms and just relaxation of it is great. I notice that when I do it, when I take the time to do it I should say, I really feel better afterwards.
    Go for it!!
