National Yoga Awareness Month raises awareness that there is research being conducted about the effect of yoga on our bodies. As physicians start to incorporate preventive medicine into their practices, many are looking to yoga.
Available reviews of a wide range of yoga practices suggest yoga can reduce the impact of exaggerated stress responses and may be helpful for both anxiety and depression. In this respect, yoga functions like other self-soothing techniques, such as meditation, relaxation, exercise, or even socializing with friends.
