Yoga may help people with arthritis deal with pain and stiffness, improve range of motion and increase strength for daily activities. Yoga is an ancient system of mental, physical and spiritual training practiced daily by millions of people of all ages and all levels of wellness. For thousands of years people have turned to Yoga to build flexibility and strength, improve concentration, relieve stress and increase energy.
If you are thinking about participating in yoga, there are several branches of practice to consider, including a devotional form called Bhakti Yoga and the meditation of Raja Yoga. Hatha Yoga, a system of gentle stretches and balancing exercises that balance energy and provide low-impact, full-body conditioning is the most common form of Yoga for Westerners.
