India is also the home of Yoga, which is now used as part of alternative medicine practices for patients wanting a more holistic treatment. Yoga in alternative medicine involves the use of Yoga components such as relaxation exercises, poses, meditation, breathing practices, and nutritional recommendations to help augment health and treat medical conditions.
Yoga is popularized as an exercise (Hatha Yoga) and it is considered beneficial in medicine because it is considered a low-impact workout, it promotes proper breathing, and it helps relieve stress. Here are some of the clinical considerations where Yoga may be beneficial:
- Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and stress
- Chest pain/angina
- High cholesterol
- Cardiovascular disorders
Individuals seek supplementary treatments to augment their existing medical treatments to attain a holistic improvement in their medical condition. Yoga is one of the popular additions to medical/pharmacological therapies since it instigates a host of benefits in the patients.
One of the best places to study Yoga is Mysore, India’s “Astanga Vinyasa Yoga” capital. It is a visitor-worthy place known for its grand temples and majestic palaces. Mysore’s Ashtanga Yoga involves progressive postures and breath synchronization which allows for body detoxification. Some of the best schools offering Ashtanga Yoga classes in Mysore include KPJAYI (Ashtanga Yoga Institute), IndeaYoga, Atma Vikasa Center, Sthalam8, and many others.
