Lockdown Got You Feeling Low? Yoga May Help
THURSDAY, May 21, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Many people under stay-at-home orders have turned to online yoga as a way to manage the stress. And a new research review suggests they're onto something.
The review, of 19 clinical trials, focused on the benefits of yoga for people with clinical mental health conditions ranging from anxiety disorders to alcohol dependence to schizophrenia. Overall, it found yoga classes helped ease those patients' depression symptoms.
And while the trials focused on in-person classes for people with formal diagnoses, there are broader implications, the researchers said.
