Millions Finding Benefit through Yoga

Yoga consistently ranks as one of the top fitness trends year after year and continues to rise in popularity. USA Today recently reported that 24 million American adults participated in yoga in 2013, making it roughly as popular as golf.

According to MEI Fitness Yoga Instructor Lorie Decker, “I truly believe, with daily practice, yoga is life changing. Taking the time on a daily basis just to relax and breath makes a world of difference.”


Traditional yoga originated in India as a series of physical, mental, and spiritual practices with a view to attain a permanent peace of mind. Today there are many variations to appeal to all different audiences, from Yogafit to Power Yoga to Prenatal and more. Through our class at MEI Fitness, Lorie can show you modifications to tailor your Yoga experience to your fitness level and goals. She practiced Prenatal Yoga while pregnant with her second child and can personally affirm its benefits. More than just a fitness tool, for many it becomes lifestyle — a therapy for both the body and mind.


If you haven’t tried it, find out what makes Yoga so popular. Wind down your Monday evening with Lorie at both 7 and 8 p.m.  Or if mornings are more your style, we have a Yoga class every Thursday at 10 a.m. Classes are free with an MEI Fitness membership.
