Yoga may improve restless legs syndrome
This article demonstrates in a small group of women with restless legs syndrome (RLS) improved with regular yoga. There is no control group, so it's not clear that the yoga itself improved their RLS. In many patients, RLS symptoms wax and wane, so some of the improvement may be regression toward the mean - the RLS may have gotten better with time alone, and the yoga may not have anything to do with it. Also, exercise has been shown to help RLS - not just yoga.
