This article, by a well-respected expert, asserts that yoga heals the mind by working with the body. That makes sense to me.

    Ok, I’ve read the article. What are your feelings about yoga as an intervention? Do you think it has any benefit over other forms of exercise, or does execs in any form “do a body good?”

    • Hi Shelly,
      As usual, you have nailed it. I think you raise a very good question which is that if one focuses on one’s body, in any way, by hiking, biking, playing tennis, etc, then does that help heal the mind. I think the answer is yes, but of course, this is highly speculative. Thanks.
