Yoga, the ancient technique practice for harmonized external and internal body well being, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement, and gesture..... has been well known for people in the Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.
In a secondary analysis of a randomized controlled trial in comparing the effects of yoga with those of usual cares in 40 breast cancer survivors suffered from menopausal symptoms, with all participants completed all 3 assessments (week 0, week 12, and week 24), yoga attendees scored a significant improvement of total menopausal symptoms, including psychological menopausal symptoms, and urogenital menopausal symptoms, as well as enhanced, quality of life, social well-being, emotional well-being, functional well-being and fatigue in comparison to control group.
Dr. Koch AK, the lead author said, "self-esteem plays a vital role in the beneficial effect of yoga and that yoga can have long-term benefits for women diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing menopausal transition".
Furthermore, in the compared study to test the effects of a 12-week traditional Hatha yoga and meditation intervention on menopausal symptoms in breast cancer survivors, yoga and meditation intervention expresses a significant improvement in lower total menopausal symptoms compared with the usual care group at week 12 (mean difference, -5.6; 95% confidence interval, -9.2 to -1.9; P = .004) and at week 24.
Additionally, Yoga group also showed a remarkable benefit in less vegetative, psychological, and urogenital menopausal symptoms; less fatigue at weeks 12, particular in short terms.
With the promising results, some researchers suggested that yoga can be considered as a safe and effective alternative intervention in ameliorated menopausal symptoms with persistence, at least 3 months.

According to the 37 disease-free women experiencing hot flashes randomized to the 8-week Yoga of Awareness program (gentle yoga poses, meditation, and breathing exercises) or to a wait-list control. yoga group expressed a significantly greater improvement relative to the control condition in hot-flash frequency, severity, and total scores and in levels of joint pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, symptom-related bother, and vigor in post-treatment, compared to control group.
More importantly, at 3 months follow-up, patients in yoga group onlymaintained the improvement in hot flashes, joint pain, fatigue, symptom-related bother, and vigor but also showed additional significant gains in negative mood, relaxation, and acceptance as same in post-treatment.
Taking together, Participation in a yoga class may be one of the safe and effective interventions in attenuated menopause symptoms in many aspects.
