At Dahn Yoga, we've noticed that our Atlanta yoga classes are more popular than ever, with new practitioners signing up almost every day. It's not all that surprising, really, given the amount of good press lately about the regimen's positive effects for people who are simplifying their daily lives and making personal changes.
Take, for instance, a new article written for the Worcester Telegram by health expert Jane Brody. In it, the newspaper correspondent talked about the latest book by William J. Broad, called The Science of Yoga.
Even though the new volume has caused some controversy for its depictions of ultra-rare yoga-related injuries, Brody explained that it made her decide to finally try the holistic healing routine.
"If the science recounted in this book is correct (knowing Broad, I have every reason to think it is), my creaky joints and muscles may reap some important rewards from an individualized yoga prescription," Brody wrote for the news source. "I'm especially concerned about my back, which is riddled with narrowed vertebral spaces and prone to spasms and sciatica."
Many alternative health experts agree that the mind-body regimen may be just the thing for people like Brody who are looking to make physical and mental changes all at once.
