Yoga is one of the six schools of the Hindu Philosophy, focusing on meditation as a path to self-knowledge and liberation. This ancient tradition dates back 5,000 years. It can help provide movement, support, breath, and balance to your body. The potential benefits include increase range of motion, released chronic tension, reduced blood pressure, reduced or eliminated pain, strength in the deep supportive musculature, and improved resistance to psychological and physical stress. Therapeutic Yoga also has the potential to promote overall physical and mental well-being. For people with back problems, studies have shown that yoga helps improve strength, flexibility, and endurance as well as create relaxation through breathing and meditation techniques.
