Yoga as exercise is a stretch

Posted Sep 14 2008 3:39pm

Yoga_stretch First, a note on access to the Wall Street Journal. WSJ has now placed Digg buttons at the bottom of each story. When some subscriber diggs the story, it becomes listed on the digg site...enabling free access to everyone who gets there through the digg page. You can subscribe to this as an RSS feed, and get some good WSJ content without the subscription fee!

This story from the WSJ about Yoga came to my eyes in the above fashion. Worth a note on the blog, as I've met some pretty hard-core Yoga folk in my time. Bottom line on the article is that Yoga is good at stretching and relaxation (to a debatable degree), but it surely does not qualify as cardiovascular exercise. In fact, it may cause less energy expenditure than walking!
