A combination of relaxation, deep breathing and gentle movements, studies have shown it to reduce stress, improve balance and increase muscle strength. Itís also an accessible physical activity for the elderly, overweight, or those recovering from injury.

Itís recommended to attend at least one instructed class before following a book, DVD or creating your own practice, as different schools will have slightly different approaches, and maintaining form is paramount.
