Does Yoga help against cancer?
Yoga is a form of non-aerobic exercise based on a program of precise posture and breathing techniques. Yoga is thought to cultivate prana, which means vital energy or life force and is similar to chi in traditional Chinese medicine. As a way of life, yoga is based on Hindu traditions that combine physical exercise, meditation, dietary guidelines, and ethical standards to create a union of mind, body, and spirit. Like tai chi, yoga can provide a good source of exercise and serve to increase strength and reduce stress. There are different variations of yoga, but the more common types incorporate physical movement, breathing exercises, and meditation to achieve a connection between the mind, body, and spirit. A typical yoga session may include guided imagery or visualization, in addition to gentle movements and breathing, and may last between 20 minutes and 1 hour. Yoga can be practiced at home without an instructor, but for beginners it is recommended to start with an educational class or classes at a yoga center, local community center or health club. Although yoga can provide an improved level of fitness, reduce stress, and increase feelings of relaxation and well-being, there is no evidence that it is effective in treating or preventing cancer.
