Yoga continues to get good press. Here’s the latest. An excerpt:
Yoga reduced anxiety and improved motivation and concentration in as little as eight weeks, according to a new study.
The study involved 84 college students who were put in a 10-week Hatha yoga class. The students were given standard tests to measure concentration, motivation and anxiety.
The average age of the students was 24, and 93 percent were women, 45 percent Hispanic, 35 percent white, and 7 percent African-American.
By eight weeks there was significant improvement in all three areas.
