The purpose of research performed in Disease and Disorders is to quantify the safety and efficacy of yoga for the treatment of illness. This section includes research derived from studies on individuals living with mental health or other medical conditions.
These studies are considered clinical treatment trials and can be influential in helping clinicians and policymakers make decisions about recommending yoga practices to varying patient populations.
Our hope is for yoga schools and yoga teachers to utilize this impactful content in their teachings to promote and highlight yoga's evident multi-faceted ability to improve lives.
