Yoga is a great way to unwind, relax, and get a good workout in. While there are many styles, most are a combination of focused breathing, meditation, and concentrated muscle movements. Yoga has been shown to help with pain management, relieve anxiety and depression, and help with blood pressure, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.
