People planning to curtail the likelihood of themselves having to make a claim on international health insurance policies may wish to consider taking part in yoga.
Fitness guru Laura Williams recommended it "as an add-on to other forms of exercise", as well as for boosting flexibility.
Although she did not advise people to use it as a "sole means of getting in shape", it could be an add-on for cardiovascular exercises, such as skipping, brisk walking or jogging.
The specialist noted many people engage in yoga to help them relax or as an element of their downtime, pointing out some individuals enjoy the stillness and the "discipline of the breathing", as well as the improved suppleness the pastime can provide.
Yoga was formed more than 5,000 years ago in India but is now commonplace in a wide number of countries, with lessons taking place in buildings such as health clubs, hospitals, surgeries and leisure centres.
