http://www.richmondregister.com

When Amanda McMaine got her first book about yoga at 10 years of age, she didn’t pay too much attention to it. But, when she was in her teens, and contracted an illness that compromised her immune system, she went back to the book and it changed her life. “I found that practicing yoga not only helped me get well, but it helped me create a balance in my life,” she said. Amanda not only practices yoga as a personal lifestyle, she works daily on sharing the ancient practice with students throughout Madison County and the world.

Yoga: Making changes in lives

http://www.stuttgartdailyleader.com

When you speak of the word Yoga, you either link it to twisting one’s body into a pretzel-like shape or sitting cross-legged on the floor chanting incoherently in an effort to relax. Neither of these things could be more opposite than what many Stuttgart women have experienced in two short years of practicing Yoga. “Most of the women who signed up for the classes had a general idea of the potential benefits of Yoga,” Jennifer Sullivan, the Yoga instructor, said. “A few had ever actually participated on a regular basis.”

The unorthodox gym company is also responsible for exercise initiatives such as pole-dancing, pogo-hopping and sword-training.

http://www.channelnewsasia.com

The United States has one of the world's most advanced but also most complicated health care systems, plagued by widespread waste and costs that have escalated as the US population ages, experts say. Venturing where others have failed, President Barack Obama is now proposing to spend US$634 billion on reforms aimed at expanding health care coverage among the nearly 46 million uninsured Americans.

TV linked to asthma risk doubling

http://news.bbc.co.uk

Young children who spend more than two hours a day watching TV double their risk of developing asthma, a UK study has found. Rather than telly per se being to blame, experts believe the viewing is symptomatic of a sedentary lifestyle which may be the root cause.
