HOUSTON -- Yoga has become a popular workout with so many different variations.

Now a Houston woman has trademarked her own by simply combining another ancient practice.

Acu-yoga is combining acupuncture with yoga to give you a new level of stress relief.

“I didn’t know what to expect,” says Rachel Brewer. “I am afraid of needles when i go to the doctor, especially when they draw blood. I’ve been known to faint before the needle every even touches me.”

So how’d she do at acu-yoga? She’s now a regular customer, and she says four little ‘acu’ needles and an open heart can clear the mind.

Yoga combined with accupuncture for the ultimate mind/body stress relief connection.
