It's only five minutes, but it's a crucial five minutes for Teresa Greenlees. She tries to fit it in every workday, at some point before rushing off to the office. It's her yoga time -- and she says all the stretching and deep breathing relaxes her and reduces the stress she'll feel the rest of the day.

"For me, it makes an incredible difference," says the 30-year-old marketing manager at Raymond James Financial in St. Petersburg. "It gives me an opportunity to focus my thoughts and draw in positive energy. We get into this high-stress environment where we're moving so quickly, and we forget to use all of our lungs. Yoga really forces you to concentrate on your breathing. It's very meditative."
