  Practice of Yoga addresses the requirements of physical health and inner peace. Yoga, which has its roots in India, has evolved over the last 2000 years. Yoga helps the body recover from injury and illness and promotes robust health generally. There are many inspiring stories of people who commenced Yoga practice in mid and later life with significant physical improvements. They regained strength, flexibility, vigor and a level of health they thought had passed with their youth. Yoga therapy involves the use of Yoga postures controlled breathing, relaxation, meditation, and nutrition thus, to release emotional and muscular tension, improve concentration, increase oxygen levels in the blood, and assist the body in healing itself. As complementary therapies enter mainstream of medical settings, nurses and other healthcare providers need a fundamental understanding of these modalities to enable them to advise patients effectively.
