Ulcerative Colitis and Yoga

Written by sshowalter, FoundHealth.

Effect of Yoga on Ulcerative Colitis

Yoga can be a great way to employ light, moderate, or rigorous exercise depending on what your body needs. Through asanas (poses), breathing techniques and meditation, yoga can help not only to heal the body, but also bring the person's awareness to what their body actually needs. The "mind-body" connection is often discussed when talking about healing treatments as the two are interconnected. Yoga employs both mind and body exercises, and brings them together as well!

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.
