What’s This Research About?

Yoga is increasingly used as a therapeutic practice and more than half of those
who practice report using yoga to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
As with any industry, different brands (or styles) tout their method as the most
effective. In yoga, we see a rise in the types of offerings, each with their proclaimed
benefits, few of which (if any) are solidly supported by the research. This paper
attempts to review the published randomized control trials (RCTs) published
through February 2014 to see if one style of yoga has more positive outcomes
than another style of yoga.
