Fitness, Health and Social Media Medicine Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Article Claiming the Physical Healing Qualities of Yoga

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, asserts that recent news on yoga’s healing abilities supports her own experience from post-marathon yoga practice.

NEW YORK, NY – December 19, 2011 – Social Media Medicine Expert, Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published an article on her website sharing findings about how yoga can bring pliability, alignment and balance to a runner’s body. The article, titled “Yoga for Athletes” suggests that by incorporating yoga regularly into a running routine, the body will perform better and heal faster.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Some people think that yoga is for a very specific type of person: someone who wants to be (or already is) highly flexible, and who is seeking to be one with the universe. Well, people, I’m here to clarify that you don’t have to be a “hippie” to join a yoga class. Drop your judgments at the door, and roll out a new perspective on this healing activity. Lay back on your yoga mat for a few minutes and check out these attractive benefits for folks of all backgrounds. Specifically athletes! Yoga makes for a perfect complement to your rigorous training routine.”

“I can testify from personal experience about the power of yoga in a physically active person’s life. I came to yoga after completing my first marathon. I thought my body would never go back to normal, after I pounded the pavement for months of training and for hours on race day to reach the finish line. But I was wrong. Just after one yoga class, I was miraculously cured. My body became more aligned, my muscle tightness loosened and my breathing became steadier and more focused – bringing my inner serenity to a whole new level,” reports Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
