Description

60 healthy nursing students were recruited, and 60 min yoga training was given twice weekly, for 6 months. Selected biochemical and hematological parameters were recorded along with Ferrans and Powers QoL index before and after the training period. Because we were not able to establish a separate control group, we correlated changes with the subjects´ frequency of attendance. Post-intervention statistical analysis (repeated measures of ANOVA) revealed highly significant and beneficial changes in most hematological and biochemical parameters. Major findings are enhanced bone marrow function, reduced allergic tendency, alkalization of urine, metabolic reconditioning (with special emphasis on liver function) and improvement in all QoL indices. These changes correlated positively with the subjects´ frequency of attendance, as evidenced by Pearson’s linear correlation testing. There were also significant improvements in QoL index and its subscales, both at mid training and post training. These improvements also correlated positively with attendance. The present study provides evidence of the beneficial psychophysical effects of yoga training amongst nursing students. We suggest that yoga be made an integral part of medical and paramedical collegiate education.
