benefits, and may offer advice on how to incorporate yoga into one’s
daily affairs. Some yoga sites include imagery and instruction depicting
how to perform specific yoga postures (asanas). Others sell yoga-specific
products such as yoga mats, props, books, CDs and DVDs. There are also
one-stop “supersites” that claim to provide all-inclusive content about
nearly every possible aspect of yoga.
