Humanity needs so much healing at this time. Yoga can play a big role in fostering that healing. Yoga ethical principles need to inform everything that we do, individually and as an organization. It will take all of us working together. What better way to do it than in the light of Yoga?
Målet med dette studiet har vært å evaluere effekten yoga kan ha på stress og angst-symptomer hos barn med diagnosen ASD (autism spectrum disorder)
I 2008 på et britisk universitet ble det gjort et 6-ukers forsøk for å se om et kort Yogaprogram kan bedre velvære og opplevelse av stress på en arbeidsplas. Det ble funnet signifikante økninger i opplevelse av humør og velvære i gruppen som gjennomførte kurset i forhold til en kontrollgruppe som ikke gjorde Yoga.

purposively selected male blood pressure patients from Amritsar (Punjab, India), aged 30– 50 years, volunteered to participate in this study. The yogic exercises training may be recommended to control blood pressure and may contribute to enhance health status and wellness.

We hear of yogis living to a very old age. In his book Autobiography of a Yogi, Yogananda speaks of Trailanga Swami, who was reputed to be over 300 years old, and Shankari Mai Jiew, who was born in 1826, was still alive in 1946. Maharishi Raghuvacharya lived to the age of 115, and Devraha Baba was believed to have lived to over 250 years old. Yogis well known in the west who lived to a very old age include Krishnamacharya (101), Pattabhi Jois (93) and Indra Devi (103).
