In my conversations with friends, I am often asked if, as a Yoga teacher, I think Yoga will help with migraine headaches, bone healing, menstrual difficulties, PTSD, weight control, allergies, anxiety, diabetes, cancer, mental health, phobias, and much, much more.

It’s almost incredible, I say, but I have never found a condition that Yoga does not help — if it’s taught correctly and the practitioner is willing to spend time on the mat and meditation cushion. This system of living arts and healing sciences, which has been around for thousands of years, produces extraordinary healings.

The amount and quality of research looking at the impact of yoga on improving health and treating medical conditions have increased dramatically in the past decade. Most reviews of yoga research focus on only a single disease or population, and this new review on the state of Yoga research shows examples of and references for notable research across many different modalities, diseases, and populations.

People who practice Yoga have found the therapeutic effects that are life-changing. The benefits include reduction of inflammation and a calm state of mind and extend to school-age children, adolescents, expectant mothers, and the elderly. Yoga has been found to be transformative in the workplace, among athletes, and for active duty military and veterans with pain conditions, combat stress, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A search on the US National Library of Medicine’s biomedical database now yields approximately 3,150 scientific publications on Yoga’s benefits! Find out if Yoga can help you! and
