RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - September is National Yoga Awareness Month, and according to the American Osteopathic Association, the purpose of yoga is to build strength, awareness, and harmony in both the mind and the body.
Yoga can provide a person with a plethora of benefits; from increasing flexibility and energy levels, to managing stress, the exercise can be favorable to anyone who wants to incorporate it into their lives.
Ashlyn Dahl from the Black Hills Hot Room in Spearfish told us why she got into yoga, and the personal benefits that she has gained from practicing yoga.

She adds that yoga is for everyone, and people shouldn’t shy away from giving it a try.
“There’s a lot of stereotypes that it’s only for athletes or bendy people, but there are so many forms of yoga, and there’s really a million reasons to do it,” said Dahl.
