There are 2 comments on Yoga Might Reduce Depression after Just One Session

  1. This article personally caught my eye because my anatomy teacher has been including yoga sessions as part of our class activities. I’m not going to lie I was never really a big fan of yoga, but after having two sessions of it in class so far I can definitely say I find it relaxing. This might sound cheesy but I feel like it helps you organize your thoughts and clear your mind. Not to mention I find it easier to understand the anatomical terminology of the body as we engage in activities such as yoga. As we would do different yoga poses, my teacher would say something like “the hands are now supinated” and I found it easier to remember what supinated meant that way. However, I was a bit shocked to find out that might actually be able to reduce depression.

  2. In today’s world importance of yoga is increasing. People are becoming aware of how Yoga practices can be beneficial to them. When I see this post I immediately shared on my Facebook, because I felt that what is always lacking is research studies and proof. This kind of work will benefit many people to believe in this ancient practice.

    Thanks and regards,
