Yoga is an increasingly popular practice due to its many physical and psychological benefits. It can provide stress relief, improve posture, increase flexibility and build strength. Yoga’s relaxation techniques can lower blood pressure and thus benefit people at risk for heart disease and other chronic conditions. Many people are also drawn to yoga for its therapeutic effectiveness in helping practitioners develop coping skills and a positive mindset about life in general. In the United States alone, yoga has become a $7 billion industry and continues to flourish. However, along with yoga’s rise in commercialization is the climbing rate of injury as a result of improper yoga practice.
