Benefits of Yoga for Arthritis
Medical research has shown that yoga can have several physical and psychological benefits. These include increased strength, flexibility, balance and a greater ability to relax and manage stress. Yoga can help people to breathe more efficiently, and reduce anxiety or depression. It can also improve positive feelings, increase energy, and reduce the symptoms of many chronic disorders.
Yoga for Arthritis was developed at a leading research university by an interdisciplinary team of medical and healing professionals. This team included rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with rheumatoid and/or osteoarthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial, program participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, disease biomarkers, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life.
