Potential Benefits for Adults
Long-term yoga practitioners in the United States have reported musculoskeletal and mental health improvements, as well as reduced symptoms of asthma in asthmatics. Regular yoga practice increases brain GABA levels and has been shown to improve mood and anxiety more than some other metabolically matched exercises, such as walking. The three main focuses of Hatha yoga (exercise, breathing, and meditation) make it beneficial to those suffering from heart disease. Overall, studies of the effects of yoga on heart disease suggest that yoga may reduce high blood pressure, improve symptoms of heart failure, enhance cardiac rehabilitation, and lower cardiovascular risk factors. For chronic low back pain, specialist Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs has been found 30% more beneficial than usual care alone in a UK clinical trial. Other smaller studies support this finding. The Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs program is the dominant treatment for society (both cheaper and more effective than usual care alone) due to 8.5 fewer days off work each year. A research group from Boston University School of Medicine also tested yoga’s effects on lower back pain. Over twelve weeks, one group of volunteers practiced yoga while the control group continued with standard treatment for back pain. The reported pain for yoga participants decreased by one third, while the standard treatment group had only a five percent drop. Yoga participants also had a drop of 80% in pain medication use.
There has been an emergence of studies investigating yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer patients. Yoga is used for treatment of cancer patients to decrease depression, insomnia, pain, and fatigue and increase anxiety control. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programs include yoga as a mind-body technique to reduce stress. A study found that after seven weeks the group treated with yoga reported significantly less mood disturbance and reduced stress compared to the control group. Another study found that MBSR had showed positive effects on sleep anxiety, quality of life, and spiritual growth in cancer patients.
Fitness and Weight Management
Practicing yoga can improve your fitness and help you achieve or maintain a healthy weight. Properly executing yoga poses strengthens your bones and muscles, enhances your balance, and promotes flexibility and greater range of motion, all of which can help protect your body against everyday injuries. Women who practice yoga tend to have lower body mass indexes and better control over their weight than those who do not practice yoga.
According to "Yoga Journal" medical editor Timothy McCall, M.D., yoga is the most powerful system of overall health. Practicing yoga regularly makes you more aware of your body. You'll start to feel what overeating and remaining sedentary does to your body. You'll learn how to eat to live versus live to eat. Yoga also helps your organs function properly, improving your digestion, metabolism, and hormone function.
Stress Reduction and Disease Management
Stress reduction is a major health benefit of practicing yoga. Yoga's emphasis on breathing and meditation can help calm your mind and mediate your body's typical response to stress, lowering your blood pressure and decreasing production of stress hormones. Simply decreasing your overall stress can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Because certain diseases are aggravated by stress, however, practicing yoga can also be helpful for disease management. For instance, yoga can be beneficial in managing or preventing heart disease, insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome, all of which are stress-related. Yoga can also help cancer patients because reduced stress enables the immune system to perform more effectively. Yoga has also been shown to improve people's moods, and to reduce anxiety and depression.
Yoga is also helpful in managing pain due to arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain and other types of chronic pain. Lowering stress through yoga can reduce your body's sensitivity to pain. Practicing yoga poses will also reduce pain by improving strength and flexibility while teaching your body some better, less painful ways to move.
