Jason Crandell has very well said that the nature of yoga is to shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of your body!
Yoga indeed is the science of youthfulness, the art of well-being, and a means to integrate, beautify, and energise the body, mind, and soul. And it is not restricted to the mat because when it comes to building a healthy body and ensuring overall fitness, all sorts of physical activities like running, swimming, hiking, or even walking contribute significantly.
The entire concept of fitness and health has become even more valuable in the current scenario where the nation is still tottering through the Coronavirus pandemic. With more time at home, everyone is probably working out more than ever before. If you’re searching for a means to measure all of your progress, a smartwatch is what you need.
