The term “yoga” is used to describe the practice of stretching, relaxing and breathing exercises, but it is actually a wide range of physical exercises.
The term comes from the ancient Sanskrit term for yoga, which was used to treat the sick, injured and suffering.
There are many different types of yoga poses, which are performed on different body parts.
For example, there are the abdominal and back exercises, such as the belly dance, or the face-to-face abdominal poses, such a face-down plank or the standing plank.
These poses require the participant to stretch their muscles and joints, which may involve bending the legs and hips, twisting their torso or bending the knees.
They also require the practitioner to inhale, exhale and hold breath.
The poses may be performed for a short period of time, for a longer period of a few minutes or for as long as a few hours.
