1). Today, Ushaben Mehta helped in the chair yoga and Manishaben conducted Chair Yoga poses for body joints toning and giving relief to problems. Many thanks to both on behalf of Kendra.
It is interesting to read the article on online BBC news about : “Should you wipe down your gym Yoga mat to avoid germs ?”
