Lawrence Phillips, M.D., an assistant professor of medicine and physician of cardiology at NYU Langone Medical Center who wasn't affiliated with the study, is less sure.
"The study shows reason for concern with some core temperatures going up to those levels," Dr. Phillips says.

Nonetheless, yoga's benefits have been long suspected, said Dr. Larry Phillips, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York.
"I think what we've seen is with yoga and the relaxation and behavior modification that goes along with it, there is a benefit to all patients, but especially those with heart disease," said Phillips, who was not involved in the new analysis.
"Here we are able to see there are more measurable benefits than we've seen before," he told Reuters Health.
Phillips said he encourages his patients to develop a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen, which could include yoga. He urges people to find a class that is appropriate for their comfort level and ability.
"I think the effects of relaxation do decrease stress levels and have a benefit to the heart," said Phillips, adding that he had found doing yoga boosted his own mood and energy level.

"We have known that heart disease symptoms can occur from more than just physical stress like exercise, but also emotional stress as well," said Dr. Lawrence Phillips, an assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, New York City. "This study demonstrates that medication therapy to reduce emotional stress can decrease the risk of heart damage."
In fact, "when speaking to patients about a symptom of chest pain, physicians will typically ask them if the chest pain is brought on by exercise or by emotional stress," Phillips added.

Dr. Phillips is an Instructor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology at New York University Langone Medical Center. He received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA. He completed his internal medicine residency, chief residency, and cardiology fellowship at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY. His current research is in the area of appropriateness of noninvasive cardiac imaging in select patient populations.
Dr. Phillips has been a member of the American College of Physicians for ten years. He has served both on the New York as well as the National Council of Associates. He was the chair of the National Council of Associates from 2006-2007. In that role, he served as an ex-officio member of the ACP's Board of Regents. He was the recipient of the 2008 Joseph E. Johnson Leadership Award and was made a Fellow of the College in 2007. He is currently the faculty advisor to the Associate's Committee of the New York Chapter of the ACP.

"This shows that yoga does have cardiovascular benefits," said Dr. Lawrence Phillips, an assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City.
But Phillips said he wouldn't go so far as to say yoga is as good as brisk walking, biking or other conventional forms of exercise that have been better studied.
"And I wouldn't want people to think that yoga, or any form of exercise, takes the place of any medications they need," Phillips stressed.
That said, he noted that yoga can do more than get the body moving; it's a "mind-body" practice that can also help with reducing stress and calming the nervous system.
Phillips agreed that people should know what they're getting into before taking a yoga class -- especially if they have physical limitations or medical conditions. And even relatively healthy people would be wise to start at the beginning.
"Make sure you're going to a beginner's class, and tell the people at the center that you're new to yoga," Phillips said. "And remember that you don't have to do everything that's offered in the class."
As for cost, a class at a yoga center can run $15 to $20, or more. But, Phillips noted, as yoga grows more and more popular, lower-cost options are becoming available -- including at senior centers, hospitals and other venues.
