Article is great. Found some important tips. Really yoga is the key to good health


Firstly Id like to say this site is very interesting reading, so thank you. I have trained strength and power training for years and I am very flexable. I dont think your comment about training weights you lose flexability is correct. Thats so far from the truth. I have tried Yoga three times and have never felt good after a class? I do believe everything in moderation, weights gym yoga chocolate etc...Maybe I will try yoga again someday although I feel tai chi is a much healthier option.


Ihave asthma. Was using provair & flow vent. the latter is D /cd & use pro air rarely ---- I do pranayama, chair yoga, & say my prayers. Will continue to practice deep breathing. I am almost 80 .


Fantastic article, I am always telling my students how md's have studied the effect a yoga practice has on our health & well-being and now I can show them this in print. Thank you!


I have suffered neck, shoulder, and upper back pain chronically for years. Since starting yoga about 7 months ago, I am in much less pain.

Awesome.....loved it


I have TOS and have had both first ribs removed due to nerve damage and extreme pain. Yoga does wonders for the pain I am afraid I will always have. I too am very interested in the postures you are doing.
Thank you so much!! Shawnn

I have been practicing yoga for a year and lately I developed TOS symptoms (unrelated to the yoga). Can you recommend some basic postures that can help...and also, some that I should not do? Thanks in advance . Dolfy Freinquel
