Hi {!name},

There are several different types of
yoga and you really need to choose the
one that you believe will give you the
most benefits for what you are trying
to achieve.

All forms of yoga will add benefit no

What many people regard as the most
extreme form of yoga is Bikram yoga
where the routines are performed in
