Yoga can help you address a range of mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health challenges; but unfortunately, if you're one of nearly 50% of people with a chronic health problem, it can create more harm than good if the right practices aren’t chosen.
What many people don't realize is that Yoga is not *just* a physical practice; in fact, if you can breathe, you can practice yoga. Yoga can be made accessible to you no matter your physical health and it can have a profound impact on your wellness journey.
In recent years, research has shown yoga to be a powerful adjunctive treatment for many health challenges and it presently ranks as the number one choice of complimentary alternative medicine for chronic pain.
But, the practices that help address chronic pain, depression and anxiety, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disorders, sleep problems or cancer and arthritis, etc; aren't necessarily the practices that you're going to find at gyms or in online programs.
