Many Swear by Yoga's Healing Techniques

Many of those who practice yoga swear by its healing techniques.

A few ladies gathered at the Yoga Room in Warren to learn about "energy medicine." Yoga enthusiasts claim energy medicine helps bolster the immune system, relieve stress, and alleviate pain.

Yoga Room owner Maureen Lauer-Gatta says getting rid of stress can help your body in the long run.

"Just relax the body. We have so much stress in this area. People have lost their jobs or they can't find jobs and this is just a way to reduce stress and gain flexibility," explained Lauer-Gatta. "You don't have to have any kind of flexibility to do yoga. I like to tell people, 'if you can breathe, you can do yoga.'"

Experts say non-invasive yoga techniques help the body heal naturally.
