Yoga Strength Benefits for Men and Women

‘Yoga for strength training and weightlifting’ sounds like a total oxymoron, but time and time again the exercise discliplines prove to complement each other in surprising ways.

Yoga is much more physical than many suspect, and when combined with weightlifting can lead to numerous conditioning and health benefits.
