Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline based on an extremely subtle science, which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body. It is an art and science of healthy living. Many experts have recommended yoga for women to help them successfully cater to the multiple demands on their time. Yoga does more for women than just make their bodies supple. It lends balance to the mind and nourishment to the soul. That is why women should not consider yoga as another chore on their overloaded schedule but as a necessary activity that will help them handle their other obligations optimally.
