The practice of yoga could represent the ideal solution to reduce it stress da work and of back pains. Those who work in the office and spend many hours of their day sitting at their desk, with little opportunity to practice movement, should change their habits and dedicate a few minutes within their work routine to yoga exercises.
This is what emerges from a new study conducted in the United Kingdom, and published in the journal Occupational Medicine, in order to verify the benefits of yoga on those who carry out a job and a life both rather sedentary. It involved 74 British government employees aged between 25 and 64 who complained of feeling stressed and experiencing back pain.
The employees were divided into two groups, one of which was offered the opportunity to practicing yoga for eight weeks, while the remaining participants in the study would have continued to carry out their regular work activities without the aid of the beneficial practice of oriental origins.
Participants assigned to practice yoga were able to take part in one 50-minute lesson per week during the lunch break or after work. Added to this was the possibility of practicing yoga at home twice a week with 20-minute sessions and the help of a DVD.
At the end of the course, both those who had practiced yoga and those who had not participated in the classes were subjected to a questionnaire on their psychophysical well-being, from which it emerged that almost half of the people who had followed the yoga classes and that in they had previously complained of back pain, they had later noticed a improvement of your situation.
The experts have decided to deepen what they have observed so far with further studies. Most of the employees involved in the present research were women and the latter were able to obtain the greater benefits from yoga. It therefore remains to be verified whether the practice could also be effective on men and whether the improvements were not the consequence of a self-belief regarding the positive effects that the practice could have guaranteed to the participants.
