You may want to take up a simple form of yoga to stay healthy, even ward off Alzheimer’s Disease. That’s the finding of new research conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
The doctor behind this research says what’s exciting – this form of yoga is something just about everyone can do. He’s talking about Yoga Breathing.
At the American Cancer Society’s Charleston Hope Lodge, Dr. Sundar Balasubramanian leads a class in Yoga Breathing each Wednesday morning.
“Just focus on your breathing,” he tells the group sitting around the large table. Cancer patients and their caregivers are learning the various techniques.
They quietly breath in, moving their fingers as they silently count.
