Yoga's quickly become one of the most popular forms of exercise around the world, and for good reason. One of the best parts of choosing a yoga practice for your daily workout is that it can be done literally anywhere. All you need is a yoga mat and some peace and quiet to get your om on.

This also makes it perfect for working moms, who are the some of the best multitaskers we know. All of that hard work at home and at the office takes its toll, and yoga is the perfect way to center yourself when things feel crazy, We're divulging just a few of the many benefits below, and you can get them all no matter where you are with the online course Yoga: Beginner Through Advanced Techniques.

1. Stress less

Stress can cause serious long-term harm to your health and overall happiness. From rhythmic breathing to meditation, yoga helps to bring that stress level to a minimum.

2. Deep sleep

Who doesn't love a good night's sleep? The older we get, the rarer they seem to occur. Get your yoga on consistently for at least eight weeks for quality zzz's at night.

3. Quiet time

We're all in need of a little peace and quiet. Yoga will help you get away from it all and focus on yourself so you can be more present and patient when you decide to jump back into the wild.

4. It does a body good

From lowering cholesterol and blood sugar to increasing bone density and strengthening muscles, yoga works wonders from your heart to your abs.

5. The pants

We could live in yoga pants all day. The athleisure trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Since you can go from yoga class to the grocery store and anywhere in between, the comfy pants save you time too.

It all seems like a win-win to us. Try these Beginner Through Advanced Techniques to get started. Usually $595, the online course is currently $34 — less than the cost of two classes in a studio!
