Yoga can have big health benefits — just ask the elephants at Houston's zoo


Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. Yoga can have tremendous health benefits when practiced regularly. Just ask the elephants at the Houston Zoo. They take daily yoga classes.

The yoga classes are voluntary, but elephants who participate get special treats like bananas and slices of bread. Who wouldn't do yoga for that?
