It's officially 2017 and if you're trying to think of new things you can jump into as part of a New Year's Resolution, you might want to put yoga on your list.

If you think that yoga is only for flexible, young people- think again! Yoga is amazing for people of all shapes, sizes, and flexibilities.

What's more is that there's a study that says doing yoga might really help manage and improve heart problems.

Everyone knows that yoga improves muscle strength and flexibility, but researchers have learned that yoga also cuts down on cardiovascular disease risk factors.

What's really amazing is that yoga appears to provide the same benefits in improving heart health as traditional physical activities such as biking or brisk walking do.

Scientists believe that people enjoy positive effects from yoga because yoga helps reduce stress, and when stress is reduced, the body is allowed to heal and strengthen.
