Fair Haven, NJ (PressExposure) April 10, 2008 -- The most current medical research indicates that the benefits of practicing Yoga are much more significant than previously thought. A recent groundbreaking medical study clearly shows how Yoga can benefit a wide variety of physical and mental ailments.
Darry Guli, owner of The Yoga Studio in Fair Haven, New Jersey, has a background as a geriatric nurse practitioner, giving her a unique perspective on the health benefits of Yoga. âI have always known how beneficial practicing Yoga can be,â says Ms. Guli. âIt has helped my clients address numerous health concerns, with dramatic physical improvements in conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, low back pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more.â
"I'm quite sure this is the first study that's shown there is a measurable change in a major (brain) neurotransmitter with a behavioral intervention such as Yoga," said Dr. Chris Streeter, a neurologist and psychiatrist at the Boston University School of Medicine. "What's really fabulous is this is hard science that is able to clearly document neurochemical changes in the brain."
Additionally, experts at the world-renowned Mayo clinic have found Yoga can offer many health benefits including management of chronic health conditions, increased flexibility, weight loss, balance, coping with cancer, managing Alzheimerâs caregiver stress and fatigue, and can reduce general stress and anxiety.
The Yoga Studio offers a wide range of classes for all ages, conditions, and physical abilities. Classes include Yoga Nidra, classes specifically designed for educators, classes for beginners & continuing students, gentle classes for the elderly, ill, or frail students, classes for children, and classes for moms & babies. .
