Yoga Does a Heart Good
It’s officially 2016 and if you’re trying to think of new things you can jump into as part of a New Year’s Resolution, you might want to put yoga on that list.
According to a new study, doing yoga might go a long way toward helping manage and improve heart problems.
Everyone knows that yoga improves muscle strength and flexibility, but researchers were surprised to learn that yoga also cut down on cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Amazingly, yoga seems to provide the same benefits in improving heart health as traditional physical activities such as biking or brisk walking.
Scientists believe that people enjoy positive effects from yoga because they reduce stress, which lets the body heal and strengthen itself.
