Stay healthy with YOGA!

I love being active! I mostly work out by walking, cycling and since recently doing yoga! According to the Department of Health (2009) staying active reduces the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, obesity, osteoporosis (brittle bones disease), depression and even dementia. Isn’t that amazing? The Department of Health advices everyone to do at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day, for example housework, jogging, cycling, swiming, dancing, gardening, brisk walking etc. And last but not least, staying active is proven to make you live longer!
