Effects of Yoga



You don’t have to be able to do a handstand to enjoy the benefits of yoga! According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, 82% of adults who practice yoga said it improved their overall health and made them feel better. As an increasing number of studies are showing, yoga may help with several aspects of wellness including stress management, balance, healthy eating and physical activity habits. Here are a few ways yoga can help your wellbeing:
  1. Yoga may help relieve some symptoms of chronic pain conditions, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  2. Yoga-based interventions can help individuals create healthy eating and physical activity habits.
  3. Yoga may be helpful for anxiety or depressive symptoms associated with difficult life situations.
  4. Yoga may help manage sleep problems because it can help ease stress and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
