Research Finds Even Extra Proof That Yoga Can Assist Lower Nervousness

Study Finds Even More Proof That Yoga Can Help Decrease Anxiety

While the short-term effects of yoga have shown promise, the long-term effects may be less. In a six month follow-up, the researchers still saw improvements in the CBT group but not in the yoga group.

"This study suggests that trying yoga is of significant value, at least in the short term, for people with generalized anxiety disorder," says lead study author Naomi M. Simon, M.D., in a press release. "Yoga is well tolerated, easily accessible, and has a number of health benefits."

To achieve more lasting effects, the practice may need to be combined with other forms of treatment such as medicine or therapy. Finding additional and more accessible treatment options like yoga can help people overcome barriers to care, Simon adds.
