Yoga has become an extremely popular form of physical activity in the United States over the past decade and has even generated enough interest to support studios that focus on a particular form of yoga or a variety of activity-related disciplines. There is no questioning the many benefits of yoga which include reduced stress, reduced risk of lower back pain, and improvements in flexibility among both fit and unfit populations. In sedentary populations and untrained populations, studies have indicated some improvements in strength and mild improvements in cardiovascular conditioning. However it is important to note that although these benefits certainly can contribute to an improved quality of life, using yoga as one’s only form of exercise may leave some physical deficiencies.
