1. Relieve Pain
Yoga is known to focus on posture and breathing during its many routines, but it also puts emphasis on mental focus, which can help during asthma episodes. Learning to focus, stay relaxed, and remain calm during stressful times can help improve lung functions and help sufferers during an asthma attack. Yoga is also wonderful for those who suffer from arthritis because it is a very low impact exercise. It involves long, fluid movements and the main focus is on controlling the body’s movements. This in turn can help to ease pain, loosen stiff muscles, increase mobility, and reduce symptoms of arthritis in the joints. Many medical studies have been conducted and a lot of research has been done on the effects that yoga has on back pain. Many of these studies have pointed to yoga as a helpful step in reducing back pain. Yoga and the associated mediation that comes with it helps prevent back pain by accentuating good posture and improving overall muscle tone.
