Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What are the benefits of doing regular yoga? Ideally would like the quotes to focus on mental health and physical health.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yoga is very popular nowadays to maintain physical and mental health. Yoga means addiction. It is an addiction to different body organs in such a way it helps to remove the attention of the mind from their subjects and concentrate on the particular points.Yoga is not only asana and pranayama. However, it contains Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhan. These eight are collectively known as Astanga yoga. Yoga helps to coordinate our routine life, regulates body metabolism, relaxes the mind, and improves mental health.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
