Learn about the 10 yoga poses that can help you:
- Focus on breathing and relax respiration.

Tuesday: Yoga for Sleep and Insomnia
Tuesday gave us information on how yoga can help insomnia, improve sleep, and even which poses to do at 3 a.m.!
Wednesday: Yoga for Men
We all know yoga isn’t for women only, but sometimes it seems like we see more women than men practicing yoga.
On Wednesday, we got information from MindBodyGreen, Mens Health, and About.com on ways men can start learning about yoga and why practicing yoga is specifically beneficial to them.
Thursday: Use Yoga to Improve Your Sex Life
Hey, that got everyone’s attention, didn’t it?!
