Mark Davis. The practice is literally for every body – it meets you where you are no matter what your capacity or state of health.Yoga Day USA was created by Yoga Alliance, the international gold standard for professional yoga teachers & schools and the leader in setting standards that protect the health and welfare of society.According to a 2008 Yoga Journal study, 15.8 million Americans practice yoga and 14 million say that a doctor or therapist has recommended yoga to improve their health. Yoga as medical therapy is garnering more attention in the medical community as demonstrated by National Institute of Health’s (NIH) first ever Yoga Week which explored the science and practice of yoga. The benefits of yoga are numerous: including stress management, improvement in heart health, reduction of cholesterol, and improved circulation.
