Yoga, as defined in Ministry of AYUSH, is a spiritual science for the integrated and holistic development of our physical, mental and moral spiritual aspects of being. The philosophy of Yoga is practical and applicable in our day to day living[i]. The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It helps manage stress and anxiety, improving respiration, energy and vitality.
According to Dr. Rabia, “Regular yoga practices ensure a balanced mind, body and soul coordination. Yoga teaches the special breathing techniques, Pranayama, which enhances physical and emotional health of women by managing the stress levels, improving their ability to deal with mood swings, increasing the sense of well-being and self-awareness.”

Along with the appropriate medical management, yoga works wonders for PCOS, menstrual pain, infertility, hypertension and other ailments.
