  • Myth: Yoga is not a workout.

    Yoga is not a workout

  • Truth: The common misconception that people have about yoga is that it includes light stretches and meditation. Seriously, this is not true. Yoga is an extensive fitness process with multiple levels and categories
     

  • Myth: For better results, you should work out every day.

    For better results, you should work out every day

  • Truth: As rigorous workouts result in breaking down the muscle fibers, it is important to give your body the time to rebuild stronger ones in its place. A hiatus of one or two days between workouts is, therefore, needed.

    Morning is the best time to work out
