Fitness for Your Mind & Body
There are dozens of different types of yoga, which can be overwhelming if you’re a beginner. From Bikram yoga (also known as hot yoga), to strength-enhancing Power yoga, to Ashtanga and VInyasa, yoga has many benefits for the mind, body and spirit. Most Western yoga derives from hatha: traditional hatha yoga consists of asana (physical yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises). With over 100 yoga poses, it’s no wonder yogis never get bored. Like many calming spa treatments, yoga is a discipline that utilises the mind-body connection to reduce stress, increase flexibility and enhance well-being.

Know Before You Go
Since the mind and body are powerfully linked, improvement in the health of our body creates a profound positive shift in our emotions. Healthy weight loss, as opposed to that done with radical fad diets, increases feelings of empowerment, self-confidence, and general happiness. Improvements in those healthy emotions translate into reconnecting with others, and, as a result, increasing feelings of support, love and belonging. -Lisette Volz, MSW, LMSW, and director of behavioral health at Hilton Head Health.
