Exercise Tips: Don’t Waste Time

This is something I’ve learned while working out at the gym – don’t waste your time. Each workout should make a difference – not a big difference, but a difference nonetheless.

Ananda Marga – The Path of Bliss

For the past few weeks I have been researching and practicing yoga for beginners. I have been looking for a yogi to teach me here in Iloilo but unfortunately I have not found anyone yet.
