The benefits to a regular yoga practice are almost overwhelming in number, with more and more science and research to back it up becoming available everyday. Medical practitioners and those representing other healing modalities are beginning to recommend yoga on a regular basis as a means to physical recovery, pain management, surgery prevention, overall improved health and even healing. This is not surprising as yoga as has been touted as a beneficial practice for 5,000 years (and some believe 10,000). While it is not in and of itself a religion, there are three primary religions, Buddhism, Hindu, and Jainism, that have embraced and further developed yoga into what it has become today. This is also a testament to this long standing tradition as it can be adapted to anyone’s life regardless of specific religious beliefs and used as a means to further the peace and connectedness to God that most souls seek.
