Although cognitive behavioural therapy still prefers first-line treatment for anxiety, “especially Kundalini Yoga” has overcome stress management training during the first 12 weeks of training. Although the researchers did not pay attention to the consequences of these treatments with the help of telemedicine or when someone is doing yoga alone at home, Simon said that she believes that yoga “is worth a try because it will not be harmful” and that if someone is having difficulty accessing treatment due to the pandemic, at least it gives them the opportunity to reduce their anxiety. BACKGROUND: Naomi Simon, MD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, New York University, Langone Health, New York; Manuela Cogon, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioural Science, Stanford University Center for Integrative Medicine, California; JAMA Psychiatry, August But she said you should try yoga that focuses on the three components, and she advised people not to worry too much about achieving “perfect posture”. She said: “If you want to try yoga to ease your anxiety it’s important to give up regularly. It is important that we have treatment options and we have found evidence that yoga has a short-term effect on reducing anxiety,” said Simon. The volunteers were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups: Kundalini Yoga, CT scan or stress training. At the time, yoga and stress education showed similar levels of effectiveness in treating anxiety. “For people who do not have access togold standard’ – cognitive behavioural therapy – yoga is another option. After 12 weeks of treatment, scientists found that yoga and TOC showed better results in stress education. Cogon agreed that other types of yoga are likely to have the same short-term effect of reducing anxiety if the three components are used. Manuela Cogon, Doctor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Stanford University Center for Integrated Medicine, was satisfied with the results. The effect of yoga and stress classes was reduced after six months. This study provided a lot of literature on how yoga affects the body,” Cogon said.
