Yoga for anxiety and depression

Since the 1970s, meditation and other stress-reduction techniques have been studied as possible treatments for depression and anxiety. One such practice, yoga, has received less attention in the medical literature, though it has become increasingly popular in recent decades.

One national survey estimated, for example, that about 7.5% of U.S. adults had tried yoga at least once, and that nearly 4% practiced yoga in the previous year.

Yoga classes can vary from gentle and accommodating to strenuous and challenging; the choice of style tends to be based on physical ability and personal preference. Hatha yoga, the most common type of yoga practiced in the United States, combines three elements: physical poses, called asanas; controlled breathing practiced in conjunction with asanas; and a short period of deep relaxation or meditation.

Many of the studies evaluating yoga's therapeutic benefits have been small and poorly designed. However, a 2004 analysis found that, in recent decades, an increasing number have been randomized controlled trials -- the most rigorous standard for proving efficacy.

Taking refuge unto Him means merging one's egoistic vanity into Him. Attainment of the supreme would be difficult for those who would consider the account of again or loss one incurs in attaining Him. If some one
considers about the loss or gain in merging into Him, how then can one surrender his petty unit "I" to Thee. His such worm-damaged mental petals of flowers shall be of no use in worshiping the Lord. Forgetting everything,
