Sleep apnea affects somewhere between 3% to 7% of people worldwide. This condition leads to an increased risk of hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. The problem is that many people suffering from apnea aren’t even aware of that. However, this doesn’t mean that they don’t have any symptoms. On the contrary, snoring, daytime fatigue, and drowsiness are common signals of sleep pattern disturbances. Frequent pauses in breathing, caused by apnea, that can last from a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes, result in poor sleep quality. It’s essential that this disorder is properly diagnosed and treated, and yoga can be a highly beneficial addition to the treatment.
