Doing yoga on a regular basis improves physical and mental health. This is why Yoga has become more mainstream. When people learn how to reduce their stress, they are less likely to become ill. And, if a person is taking blood pressure medicine and does yoga regularly, they discover that they need less medication. Yoga also helps people who have arthritis and athsma.
