Get hot for your health

I took a break from the usual routine today to enjoy a "hot" time at Bikram yoga; it's an experience everyone should have at least once in their life.

No matter what you're doing (or not doing)--running a marathon, running errands or running after your kids--yoga is one of the best things you can do for your body, not to mention your mind and spirit. To tout all the many benefits of yoga would be a whole separate post, but to mention improving strength, balance, flexibility and focus would just begin to skim the surface.

Initially a skeptic, I began practicing in 2002 and became a certified instructor in 2004 and have been teaching classes regularly ever since. It has changed my life and my health in countless ways.

Random trivia from "As many as 80 percent of Americans will suffer from low-back pain during their lifetime." These were the top three natural techniques recommended for relief:

1. Yoga
2. Acupuncture
3. Heat

Om, it makes sense to make time for yoga.
