To say that yoga can improve your balance and make you more flexible wouldn't be much of a 'stretch.' Most experts would agree there are physical benefits to it. But are there any real medical benefits to yoga? It's something doctors have debated in the past. And now, there are some new answers. With details on the largest medical study of yoga to date, here's Clark Powell. Researchers at Ohio State intentionally followed women who had never done yoga before, so they could truly gauge the impact it had. Blood tests showed that the more yoga a woman did, the better her results. Even though they only followed breast cancer patients in this study, researchers say the benefits of yoga would likely apply to survivors of other types of cancer as well.
