Don't be put off by the trend, or the goofballs you see walking around with yoga pants saying "namaste" all the time. Yoga is damn good exercise, and if you give it a chance, you just might get rid of a nagging backache, a stiff neck, or even insomnia. You don't have to believe in chakras or reincarnation or anything, really, except the idea that periodically you need to give your body and mind a little attention. The place we like to do that is Charm City Yoga, where beginners can find a class that's just the right speed, from slow and gentle to fast and furious. A variety of patient, knowledgeable instructors are available, who won't let you do anything that hurts, but will show you everything that helps get your body fit. Charm City Yoga is now spread out over four locations, which basically means you're surrounded by yoga, no escape. Namaste.
