Can yoga change your health?

Can yoga change your health? Clearly ‘yes’, according to the results of a survey conducted by Yoga in Australia through RMIT in 2008. Remarkably, of all the conditions reported as being addressed by yoga, 96% of the 4,000 respondents claimed that their condition was improved by yoga, including 53% who said their condition was “much better”. Even though this might not be hot news of the day, it’s well-worth revisiting as a validation of the many benefits that are possible through a regular yoga practice. You can read a summary of the survey report¬†here.

  1. It’s always advisable to check with your health care professional before embarking on any exercise program, particularly if you are out of shape, over 65 or have serious health problems. You definitely need to do so if you have high blood pressure, glaucoma, arthritis (particularly rheumatoid arthritis), spinal disk injuries, a history of retinal detachment or heart disease, or if you are pregnant. And be sure to inform the yoga instructor, too. If you have any of these conditions, it may be a good idea to begin your journey with one or more private sessions so you can better understand how to tailor the practice to accommodate your needs.
