VORKAPIC, Camila Ferreira  e  RANGE, Bernard. Benefits of yoga practices for anxiety disorders. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.1, pp. 50-54. ISSN 1808-5687.

Over the last years, studies have shown that a great number of individuals will experience some kind of anxiety disorder on a continuing or recurring basis. Complementary therapies such as yoga have been proved to significantly reduce anxiety symptoms. Therefore, the goal of this study was to discuss the use of yoga as an intervention for treating anxiety disorders based on findings from major controlled studies. This analysis has concluded that yoga seems to be a consistent, cost-effective and successful health care intervention in the treatment of anxiety disorders. However, this is a new field of research and further investigations combining psychological and physiological variables are necessary to establish yoga as a main or complementary protocol in the treatment of anxiety.
