Yoga for Metabolic Syndrome – Research and Practice

Topic: Yoga for metabolic syndrome – Research and Practice

Presenter: Smitha Mallaiah, MS

Description:  Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. The syndrome is so named because its interrelated maladies—abdominal obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, and insulin resistance—are handcuffed to the body’s metabolism. A person who has three or more of these is considered to have the syndrome. The American Heart Association estimates that 50 million Americans suffer from it, and the number is growing in lockstep with the country’s waistlines. The rising yoga research shows yoga as a very promising practice to manage/cure this malady. Join Smitha Mallaiah for a presentation to learn the background, research and yogic prescription for Metabolic disorders.
