ABC News Hosts Chat on Meditation and Yoga

ABC News explored the health benefits of meditation and yoga in a tweet chat on Tuesday. 

Tuesday’s chat was hosted by Dr. Richard Besser, the chief health and medical correspondent for ABC News. He took questions on the health benefits of yoga and meditation, current research, and how a meditative practice could help with stress associated with the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

Highlights from the ABC News blog included comments from top research centers and hospitals, including the University of Wisconsin, and key people in the mindfulness community, such as Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), author of A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit.
