Variety is the single most important aspect for continued health and optimal fitness. Branch out and try some disciplines you haven’t tried. Mix up your routines. I am an ashtanga teacher, but I participate in many other types of yoga. Be brave, be smart, be healthy.

Here are a few top fitness disciplines to partake:

1. Resistance training

2. Yoga

3. Pilates

4. Indoor cycling

5. Aquatics

6. Flexibility
