Health Benefits of Yoga Practices

Yoga Class Everyone knows that yoga induces a feeling of well-being in healthy people, what you may not already know is that yoga has been proven to reverse the clinical changes associated with metabolic syndrome. These are results of studies recorded in Sweden and India. Metabolic syndrome is the combination of heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure, obesity and high blood sugar.

Dr. R.P. Agrawal, of the SP Medical College, Bikaner, India and fellow colleagues took 101 volunteers and evaluated the beneficial effects of yoga on these metabolic syndrome sufferers. With three months of regular yoga treatment, meditation and Raja yoga, the patients showed signs of lowered cholesterol, decrease in waist circumference and lower blood pressure as well.

A second study was completed by Dr. Anette Kjellgren from the University Of Karlstad, Sweden where the evaluation of yoga-like breathing exercises was used on patients. Fifty-five adults spent six days a week for six weeks practicing slow and long cycles of breathing as well as rapid breathing patterns as well. At the end of this study period the patients found themselves feeling less anxiety and stress and their levels of optimism were significantly higher.

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

These two studies show that yoga induces relaxation in people of any age and can prevent lifestyle diseases as well. It is important to note here that yoga not only has the ability to prevent lifestyle diseases but gives people a strong and relaxing way to deal with diseases when diagnosed. Yoga is a powerful therapy that can be a great workout for the mind, body and soul as a whole and there are not many other therapies which exist today, quite like the practice of yoga.

Many people do not recognize yoga as the natural solution to many lifestyle problems. It is not only a fitness regime that has become so popular, it is also an age old therapy and this is the feature people tend to forget about. Yoga is the number one relaxation method as is it combines specific stretches which allow you to release tension throughout the body in a gentle and relaxing fashion. Yoga also works well in relieving stress in the mind. During yoga class you will find your mind is completely clear and the thoughts that are constantly cluttering your mind will disappear the minute the class begins.

Yoga is a great holistic experience for men and women of any age. It is a great opportunity for elderly people to improve their flexibility, joint movement and even bone density which can prevent broken bones in old age. With so many natural benefits of yoga, there is absolutely no reason not to try this therapy and see what it can do for you.
