You may turn towards yoga looking for support coping with a particular health condition. Regular yoga practice that is suited to an individual’s particular needs can positively influence many conditions, alleviating symptoms and activating your body’s own inherent healing abilities. Some people may feel that they do not have the energy to do even the simplest movements. In this situation restorative poses allow the body to rest, open and rejuvenate in a passive way.
Yoga does not exclude conventional treatment approaches but rather seeks to support and strengthen you whatever condition you find yourself in. In particularly difficult circumstances a yoga practice can be invaluable in offering a new perspective and self-confidence in dealing with an illness.
