Research published by Johns Hopkins University, shows that gentle yoga builds strength, better joint health, energy, balance and flexibility, all of which are important to people affected by arthritis and for older people in general.
Johns Hopkins Arthritis ran a large clinical trial and it found that:
"In our study we provide critical new evidence showing that in people with arthritis who are sedentary, yoga appears to be safe, feasible, and enjoyable for people with both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, and that it results in important physical and mental health benefits for people who practice it regularly."
People with health issues may need talk to their doctor before beginning yoga training, however, the evidence is that gentle, beginner level yoga training over several weeks can make a big difference to quality of life.
