10 Reasons to Participate in Yoga Day USA 2010

Even though it’s nearly the end of January, do you still find yourself writing 2009 instead of 2010 anytime you have to date something?  Perhaps this annoying quirk just goes to show how difficult it can be to wrap the brain around something new.  Old habits die hard.  And sometimes new habits just require a little motivation.

If you’re looking for a little motivation to re-jumpstart your New Year’s intention to make yoga a habit, this weekend, 23 January 2010, to be specific, looks like an excellent time to head over to the local yoga studio for Yoga Day USA.  Read more about Yoga Day USA and find a “free – or nearly free” yoga class in your neighborhood.

  1. Stress relief

  3. Better breathing
  4. Flexibility
