Thirty-five years ago cardiologist Dean Ornish made headlines with his claim that yoga and meditation, when combined with improvements in diet and exercise habits, could reverse heart disease. Since then, research into the health benefits of yoga is better understood and provides myriad reasons to maintain an ongoing practice. Yoga has been found to:

  • Minimize hypertension
  • Strengthen bones
  • Keep excess pounds at bay
  • Reduce anxiety and boost mood
  • Protect your joints
  • Improve strength and balance
  • Sharpen your mind
