Yoga for Vibrant Health & Wellness! Stress? Back pain? Arthritis? Poor Posture? Chances are good that you have or will experience these conditions, as well other types of chronic pain, at some point in your life. A majority of visits to physicians stem from these common ailments, which are often the result of daily living and lifestyle choices.
