In case you hadn’t noticed, yoga is taking over the world. One of mankind’s oldest spiritual practices is also an excellent way to stay in shape, as regular practitioners develop and maintain muscle tone, flexibility, balance and coordination, and overall cardiovascular health. Along with the physical benefits, yoga is an excellent exercise in mindfulness and meditation. It also requires very little in terms of equipment and apparatus–all you need is a mat, a basic understanding of a few core poses, and you can practice just about anywhere. All of this makes yoga one of the best and most popular fitness options out there, and La Crosse is most definitely in on this trend, with multiple studios offering classes for everyone from complete novices to hardcore yogis.
