"Experience is a powerful teacher, so we decided to give people across the country the opportunity to try yoga for themselves," Johannes R. Salinger, founder of the Yoga Health Foundation, said in a statement. "Preventative wellness can be accessed by simply unrolling a yoga mat!"
Salinger said research has shown numerous benefits of yoga including stress management, increased flexibility, relaxation, stronger muscles and stronger connective tissue.
For access to free yoga and events from over 1,800 studios across the country, visit www.yoga month.org to find a participating studio in your city, Salinger said.
Whether just beginning or continuing a journey through yoga, Yoga Month provides an opportunity to discover yoga's simple, unique health benefits firsthand, Salinger said.
