    Yoga is a mind-body practice that's considered one of many types of complementary and integrative health approaches. Yoga can help you relax and manage stress and anxiety.

    Yoga often includes poses, also called postures, combined with controlled breathing exercises and meditation or relaxation. These are a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility.

    If you have injuries or if you're concerned about exercising, consult with your health care provider before starting a yoga program.
