Overview

Strength and flexibility are the hallmarks of any fitness regimen. Yoga is one of the few activities that build both in equal measure. Each asana is in itself a study in balance; each contributes to long, lean, fluid, and functional muscles. Yoga employs both eccentric (lengthening) and concentric (shortening) muscular contractions. “Yoga for Fitness & Health,” a Yoga Journal special issue, includes Basics columns to help you master the poses you're most likely to encounter in any fitness-focused class; a Conditioning section, which explains how yoga can be used instead of weightlifting to shape your legs, glutes, arms, and back; eight fun and challenging Home Practice columns to inspire you to get on the mat; a few stories about allowing your yoga practice to influence what goes on your plate and into your mouth; and seven of YJ's best ideas for keeping your motivation high and doing an end run around burnout.
