Context

The Argument

In the midst of the chaos that is the Covid-19 pandemic, yoga acts as a retreat for many people. The strength, flexibility, focus, and balance needed to do yoga flows will sometimes force the body and mind into a meditative state. Other times, it allows someone a healthy distraction from their day-to-day. Although, simple meditation requires someone to have a solid mental center. That is extremely difficult for many people during this time. It requires a lot more mental control than most people have at this time. Yoga is both a physically and mentally engaging activity that provides a physical center to meditation or an opportunity for a mental release, depending on the practice.[1]
