Yoga Promotes Women's Fitness

If you have never tried yoga, find a beginner class and check it out. You may get hooked. Yoga is a great part of any women's fitness plan because it is low-impact and doesn't put pressure on the joints. Also, the deep stretching you do in yoga helps combat delayed-onset muscle soreness after tough workouts. Yoga can be especially helpful if your have joint problems or if you are recovering from an injury or trying to get back in shape after pregnancy.

Speaking of pregnancy, if you are pregnant, prenatal yoga helps you maintain a basic level of fitness even into the third trimester, and studies have shown that women who practice yoga and do other forms of moderate exercise during pregnancy are more comfortable during labor and delivery.
