Normally the immunity power will be low during treatment days and complete rest is required during ayurvedic treatment period. However in certain cases some of the yogasanas or stretching exercises are found to be supportive to the treatments. Inpatients are permitted to do yoga or exercises during treatment days, only if the doctors recommended it after direct consultation. Otherwise it may affect the treatments adversely.
Hence yoga or exercises are not possible during treatment days.
