Benefits of Yoga

When doctors at the HMO Group Health Cooperative in Seattle pitted 12 weekly sessions of yoga against therapeutic exercises and a handbook on self-care, they discovered the yoga group not only showed greater improvement but experienced benefits lasting 14 weeks longer. A similar 16-week study published in Pain found, “outcomes revealed significant reductions in pain intensity (64%), functional disability (77%) and pain medication usage (88%) in the yoga group at the post and 3-month follow-up assessments.” Similarly, a study published in the Journal of Orthopedic Rheumatology found, “with few exceptions, previous studies and the recent randomized control trials indicate that yoga can reduce pain and disability, can be practiced safely, and is well received by participants.”
