Stroke rehabilitation is a program with an aim to regain some physical and psychological
function after stroke, causing death of some cells in the brain.

Today, yoga, the ancient practice has become a very popular form of exercise in Western

functioning such as hip passive, upper extremity strength range of motion in post stroke
patients participated in the 6-min walk after 8 weeks of engaging in yoga.

Dr. the lead author said, " therapeutic-yoga intervention may improve multiple aspects of
physical functioning after stroke. Such an intervention may be complementary to
traditional rehabilitation"

promoted psychological health and on quality of life.

In the review literature of major biomedical and complementary medicine databases,

researchers at the Harvard Medical School found that 5 randomized controlled clinical
trials and 4 single case studies identified the positive results of improvements in
cognition, mood, and balance and reductions in stress in post stroke patients.

Furthermore, in support of the above differentiation, a prospective, randomized, pilot

study of yoga-based rehabilitation for people with chronic stroke with yoga therapy

life in after stroke patients and may be used as complementary to conventional
