Influence of yoga in achieving peace of mind


Dr. K Madhava Chandran, P Unniraman

The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence of the practice of yoga in achieving peace of mind, in comparison with people who do not do yoga. The sample consisted of 50 yoga practitioners and 50 people who do not practice yoga, who were interviewed using a questionnaire. Peace of mind was quantified as the sum of scores of parameters in the Peace of Mind Scale (Yi-Chen Lee et al, 2013). Data was statistically analysed through ANOVA. The results reveal that when compared to people who do not practice yoga, higher proportion of yoga practitioners experience peace of mind all the time and most of the time. There exists statistically significant difference between the peace of mind score of people practicing yoga and those who do not practice it. More period of yoga practice is found to contribute to higher peace of mind.
