Yoga’s Benefits Confirmed

Two recent studies indicate that regular yoga classes can have a positive effect on atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) and common psychiatric disorders. The results of the first study were published in the American College of Cardiology. Participants with atrial fibrillation (AF) were asked to take yoga classes at least twice a week for three months. At the end of the study, the number of times participants reported irregular heartbeats (confirmed by heart monitor), dropped by half. They also reported feeling less anxiety and depression overall.

In the second study, Duke University researchers reviewed more than 100 studies considering the effect of yoga on mental health. They concluded that yoga appears to help some disorders including mild depression, sleep problems, schizophrenia (among patients using medication) and ADHD (among patients using medication).
