    Looks great. I’ve been incorporating Yoga into my fitness routine ever since starting P90X. The Yoga X workout is intense. I never thought I could like yoga but love the feeling I get afterwards and it’s definitely helped my on my bike. I feel that I recover from long rides quicker now, kudos on the post about yoga :)
