Science of Yoga

Welcome to Science of Yoga!

The aims of this site are

  • to answer questions from yoga teachers and students about how yoga affects the body, and how it can improve health
  • to help yoga teachers understand how to refine their routines, to get the most out of these benefits of yoga

Place your mouse over a tab (e.g. General) and you’ll see the variety of questions under that category.  Or, use the Search Box to enter a word in your question, e.g. arthritis.  We aspire to have everything described on this site to be based on rigorous scientific evidence.  Follow the links to see original scientific articles.
