Health Minute: Yoga

Nov 10, 2020

You’re listening to WPSU’s Health Minute, a collaboration with Penn State’s College of Nursing.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, preliminary research suggests that yoga has multiple health benefits. 

Yoga combines breathing, movement, and mindfulness. Practicing yoga may help with weight loss, improved sleep, stress reduction, and pain management.

Different kinds of yoga can be adapted to virtually any body type, medical condition, or physical ability. 

To ensure safety, and to find the right yoga for you, beginners should seek guidance from a certified instructor or their health care provider.
