The amount and quality of research on the impact of yoga for improving health and treating medical conditions has increased dramatically in the past decade. It has also become quite specialized, with most reviews of yoga research focusing only a single disease or population. Our objective was to review the state of research more broadly, providing examples of and references for notable yoga research across many different research modalities, diseases, and populations.
