Yoga helps in concentration

Los Angeles, June 9 (IANS) Practising yoga can not only improve physical stamina, but also plays an important role in improving people’s concentration and accuracy.

Researchers in the US discovered that a single session of Hatha yoga significantly improved a person’s speed and accuracy when tested on their working memory and concentration, reports dailymail.co.uk.

“Yoga is an ancient Indian science and way of life that includes not only physical movements and postures but also regulated breathing and meditation,” said Neha Gothe, professor Kinesiology (human movement), health and sport studies, Wayne State University, Detroit, and lead author of the study.

“The practice involves an active attention or mindfulness component but its potential benefits have not been thoroughly explored,” she added.
