Is yoga better than traditional exercise?
Yoga and traditional exercise have different benefits and functions. So, the choice of which exercise type is better than the other depends on your individual needs and objectives. Yoga promotes a mind-body fusion concept with meditation and controlled posing as part of the exercise process. As a result, the exercises are a holistic approach to improving strength, balance, and flexibility. They also help reduce anxiety and stress. These benefits of yoga are why you can find many yoga-related products under the general category of treatment supplies and massage products.
If you are more interested in building strength and stamina, traditional exercise may be your better choice because it generally focuses on aerobic and muscle-building exercises. To achieve these fitness goals, you would engage in more rigorous exercises like running and weightlifting. These exercises are better than yoga for improving cardiovascular fitness, body shape, and overall health.
What is hand yoga?

The core of hand yoga is a series of choreographed poses involving the hands, wrists, fingers, and arms. In no particular order, these poses include the cobra poses, eagle arms, dynamic tabletop pose, wrist rotations, and fist-finger stretch. You can enhance your hand yoga exercise routine with treatment supplies like TheraBand® Hand Exerciser – Grip Strengthening Balls, DFX® Gyro Ball exerciser, and Power Webs.
