Because its a quick workout

Unlike a running and weightlifting session or a trip to the gym, a yoga-with-weights workout takes only a tiny bit of your day. The timesaving factor shows up in many places:

i You get a full-body workout in the same time it would take to work out only one body part in the gym.

i You don't get as sweaty and tired, which means you can perhaps skip a shower if you do the exercises at work.

i You can work out just about anywhere; you don't have to take the time to travel to and from a gym or yoga studio.

i You can practice your breathing and relaxation techniques during your coffee breaks or while you're stuck in traffic.

If cutting a full 20-to-30 minute slot out of your day to exercise is still too problematic or requires you to juggle too many appointments, you can divide the 20-to-30 minute workout into halves or thirds. For example, do the first four exercises in a workout in the morning and the second four exercises in the afternoon. Try keeping this book on your desk. When you come to a lull in your day — you know, one of those sluggish moments when you've finished one task and can't decide which of the numerous other tasks needs your attention — open this book and do a single exercise. If you're a mom or dad at home with the children, sneak off for a minute or two throughout the day and do one exercise. Your mind will feel clearer, and by the end of the day, you'll have completed an entire workout.

First, youve never exercised before or engaged regularly in a sport second, youve never been into the fitness crowd and have had meager time for such pursuits, and third, youre far too busy to even think of exercise.
