Jon Kabat-Zinn “Full Catastrophe Living”; Mindfulness and Yoga

“Yoga is also good exercise because it is a type of full-body conditioning. It improves strength, balance, and flexibility in the entire body. It’s like swimming, in that every part of your body is involved and benefits. It can even have cardiovascular benefits when done vigorously. But in MBSR (mindfulness bases stress reduction) the way we do it is not cardiovascular exercise. We do it primarily for stretching and strengthening your muscles and joints, to wake up the body to its full range of motion and potential for movement and balance.”
