Yoga makes you smarter!

In a recent eight-week study, adults over age 55 who took an hour-long class of hatha yoga (the most commonly practiced form of yoga worldwide) three times a week had significantly better memory and attention than adults who simply did stretching and toning exercises.  Possible reason: The focus required to hold poses and control breathing during yoga may result in better attention to mental tasks as well.
