Derived from the Sanskrit word meaning to join (“yuj”), yoga looks at merging the consciousness of an individual with that of the universal consciousness. The sincere practice of yoga takes one to this final layer where one feels bliss leading to mind-body-breath union and health. Current research is highlighting the benefits of yoga in a host of conditions. This ranges from handling stress, depression, anxiety to overcoming trauma and addressing the management of a slew of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, etc. This book is Part 1 of Yoga: research insights where the benefits offered by this approach are outlined using research articles. It starts off with a chapter on handling COVID-19 that is followed by how yoga helps manage diabetes and how yoga is useful for other conditions such as chronic fatigue, HIV and inflammation.
