Viral Hepatitis and Yoga
Effect of Yoga on Viral Hepatitis
Yoga is great for overall health and emotional well-being, and specifically yoga can focus on strengthening certain areas of the body (including the liver which is extremely important to protect with viral hepatitis.) Suing poses ("asanas"), meditation and breathing techniques, yoga can help keep people happy and healthy.
Side Effects and Warnings
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.
