According to the CDC, as of 2012, half of all adults have one or more chronic health conditions, that is about 117 million people! A majority of these conditions or diseases are effects of an unhealthy lifestyle – poor diet, lack of exercise, and too much stress. Studies are now proving that yoga has a positive impact on two of these lifestyle factors – exercise and stress management.
“In addition to preventing chronic diseases, comprehensive lifestyle changes can often reverse their progression. ” – Dr. Dean Ornish
