The One Exercise To Rule Them All

We all know that we should be moving our bodies regularly because exercise is important to our physical and mental health. But does it matter how we break a sweat, or are all workouts good enough, as long as we do them? When a group of doctors was asked about the best forms of physical activity, one was a clear favorite, above weightlifting, running, and brisk walking: yoga.

So what’s so great about yoga? It has the benefits of being a workout and relaxing your busy mind at the same time, explains Dr. Robin Berzan. And not all sweat sessions can do that. And even if you don’t have a whole hour to dedicate to it, a few minutes of yoga has health perks.

And there are all kinds of yoga, so you can probably find a class that suits you best. Dr. Ilene Ruhoy runs a few times a week and takes hot yoga in between. “Hot yoga in infrared heat is a great way to detox the muscles,” she says. “Plus, yoga maintains flexibility to keep injuries away.”

Dr, Sara Gottfried, author of “Younger,” starts each day with yoga and meditation for a half hour. She recommends “two to three hours of exercise a day to trick the brain into thinking we’re growing younger.” Not sure who has the time for all that, but a few minutes of yoga a day is good for mind and body and comes highly doctor recommended.
