Yoga Fights Pain and Fatigue in Women

A new study suggests that a yoga practice can help fight fibromyalgia, a condition "characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood" issues according to the Mayo Clinic.

MD News reports on the study which one group of women was treated with medication, while the other group took an eight week yoga program. The program included some beginner yoga poses and basic breathing and meditation techniques.

The results?

At the end of the study, researchers found that women who participated in the yoga program had less pain, memory loss, depression and tiredness; worried less; slept better and had better balance. In the group as a whole, women experienced 24% less body pain, 30% less exhaustion and 42% less depression than before starting yoga.

Namaste to that!
