Effects of yoga on mental and physical healthAuthor(s):
Dr. Arun Kumar NayakAbstract:
In the last years, a new view on mental healthcare has been formed on mental healthcare, called positive psychology. This new view states, that mental health is not solely comprised of a reduction of negative symptoms, such as stress or depression, but positive experiences as well, such as emotional well-being, happiness and self-realization. Yoga, among other activities, is in line with this new view, in the sense that it practices key aspects of positive psychology. More and more research has been conducted on the effects of yoga on mental health in the last years, but little have physical, chronic conditions been the focus of this research. In the form of a master thesis, a meta-analysis is conducted to study the effects of yoga on mental health in physical, chronic conditions.Pages: 268-270 | 1763 Views 489 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
