Effect of Yoga on Lipid Disorders

There is no question that keeping a healthy weight helps protect people from lipid disorders. Yoga is a wonderful way to exercise as you can start out with gentle poses and move into a more rigorous routine. But yoga is more than a set of physical poses, it also includes conscious breathing and mindful meditation practices as well, all of which can help treat myriad health conditions including lipid disorders.

Side Effects and Warnings

#Safety Issues

Hatha yoga is generally at least as safe as any other stretching-based exercise program. However there are a few hatha yoga positions, such as the headstand, that can cause injury when they are performed by a person who isn’t yet sufficiently advanced in yoga, or who has certain health problems, such as a detached retina. A properly qualified instructor can help you avoid injury, taking your own individual health status into account.
