This week in wellness news, want a tighter core, solid arms and sculpted legs? Not only can yoga make you more flexible and reduce stress, it can also make your body strong. By starting with poses like dolphin push-ups and half handstand, you can build and tone muscles throughout the body, and your mind will get a workout too. Now roll out your yoga mat and get ready to sweat! You’ll be amazed by what you can do.

Read that and other great yoga, health & wellness stories from around the web.

  • Yoga to Make You Strong: “You don’t always think about balance when you think about strength, but in yoga, building strength comes with the ability to control your body, no matter its position.”
  • Mediation Might Help You Live Twice As Long: “You might object that this is exactly the annoyingly metaphorical talk mentioned above. You’re not really living longer. Or are you? When we say we want to live longer, we surely don’t care about the numbers on our birthday cards. We mean precisely this subjective sense of a long, full life, of expanses of time spent with those we love, or on work we enjoy. In the only sense that actually matters, then, a life to which you paid twice the attention would indeed be twice as long.”
  • 9 Surprising Ways Mediation Changes Your Brain: “By giving our bustling mind a dedicated break from its day-to-day worries, these studies suggest, we actually empower it to run more efficiently when we’re using it. This can come in handy when we’re trying to solve a tough problem, focus intently on a task, or search for creative inspiration for a project.”
