In the U.S. 21 million people (that’s 9.5% of the population!) practice Yoga, and have found it to be beneficial in many different ways.  A growing body of research now points to the many health benefits of a yoga practice ~ some of which you may find surprising!  Below are the Cliff notes of the ways Yoga can positively affect your life:

 

  • Having a Yoga practice is associated with quality of life improvements: The improved sense of well being alone is enough for many to continue for years (myself included!!).
  • The meditation and breathing exercises are correlated with mental health benefits.
  • Yoga may be as effective for chronic low back pain as physical therapy.
  • Yoga may help those suffering with rheumatoid or osteoarthritis.
