Yoga is one of the exercises that can help you manage weight. Not only women do this but also men because it gives you inner peace and self esteem. This will relax your mind and body which allows a holistic approach to healing. It is said that it can heal some illnesses or sickness because the life energy is being brought inside the body through breathing. But some reviews stated that it does not help in healing but only strengthens your muscles and makes you more flexible.
The exercise is being used by many to treat back pain, relieve stress and to treat depression and anxiety. Yoga is somehow used to stretch your muscles because the movements are more on bending. It also increases your circulation making you relax and feel vibrant after doing the exercise. People who would like to start yoga need to do stretching first to avoid from any injury or delayed muscle soreness. If any injury occurs, you can put ice cold packs on the area to reduce swelling.
A review also found out that it can help cancer patients because the breathing and relaxation techniques help patients in relieving pain, depression, fatigue and insomnia. However, they have found out that there is no evidence that it helps patients with dementia, epilepsy, menopause and pediatric patients. For sports and athletic individuals, yoga is important to them because it help them improve their condition, makes them relax before the play, helps with their performance and decreases the risk of further injury. To some students, it helps them become alert and it improves their concentration at the same time decreases their irritability.

But should you still wish to do yoga, you can consult your doctor to check if your body can sustain the physical exercise. Some people cannot carry aggressive exercises and can only do light to moderate exercises. You can enroll in a yoga class so that you will better be assisted.
