The Benefits of Yoga Continue to Impress the Scientific Community!

Numerous studies support the health benefits of yoga. A meta-analysis of 37 randomized controlled studies has shown that yoga can have a favorable impact on various risk factors for heart disease.

Specifically, participants who practiced yoga for an average of 12 weeks experienced:

  • Weight loss of 2 kilograms
  • 5-point drop in systolic blood pressure
  • 5-point drop in diastolic blood pressure
  • 18-point drop in total cholesterol
  • 12-point drop in LDL (bad) cholesterol
  • 3-point increase in HDL (good) cholesterol
  • 6-point drop in triglycerides
  • 5-point drop in heart rate
  • In addition to reducing risk factors for heart disease, it appears that yoga has a direct impact on the disease itself.

Safety first! If you have arthritis, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, or glaucoma, our team of medical experts provides guidelines and practical advice on how to exercise safely.

Choose the yoga style that suits you best.

Some yoga styles and instructors may place greater emphasis on one component or another. For example, a physical yoga class is likely to emphasize physical poses, while others may focus on proper alignment or connecting movement with breath. No style is better or worse than another – it’s all about finding what works for you.

Chair yoga is a perfect place to start if you have balance issues or difficulty getting down on the floor. It’s also a great supplementary practice for anyone who spends long hours sitting at work, in the car, or on a plane. Even practicing a few movements will help stimulate blood flow and stretch your muscles to make you feel better.

Standing yoga can help you build strength, improve balance, and become more flexible. Practice it on its own for a quick yoga session or combine it with a floor routine for a longer yoga practice.

Floor yoga will truly stretch you, improve your flexibility, and help you relax. You’ll also benefit from strengthening your muscles, especially if you try some of the more challenging poses like downward-facing dog and cobra.
