Abstract

A widening recognition of the mind-body-spirit connection in western medicine has resulted in a growing interest in ancient health practices such as yoga. As complementary therapies enter mainstream medical settings, nurses and other healthcare providers need a fundamental understanding of these modalities to be able to advise patients effectively. This article provides an overview of yoga and details the benefits of yoga practice.
