Author(s): Humayun Islam

Abstract: Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is a great way to work on your flexibility and strength. Just about everyone can do it, too -- it's not just for people who can touch their toes or want to meditate. Some types of yoga are about relaxation. In others, you move more. Most types focus on learning poses, called asana. They also usually include attention to breathing.
Yoga usually involves paying attention to your breath, which can help you relax. It may also call for specific breathing techniques.
“The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome,” explains Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.”
