In brief: SLE and Yoga
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can have very serious side effects without appropriate medical care.
Although yoga can be an excellent addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to better work to keep the sle under control, it would be foolish to believe that yoga could treat a serious medical condition. Whoever told you this is misleading you.
