Yoga/mindfulness activities may facilitate stress management among 
elementary school students and may be added as a complement to social 
and emotional learning activities, according to a Tulane University 

Published April 10 in Psychology 
Research and Behavior Management Journal, the school-based study “Effect
 of mindfulness and yoga on quality of life for elementary school 
students and teachers” suggested that “yoga/mindfulness interventions 
may improve symptoms of anxiety among students”.

The intervention was associated with a 
significant improvement in emotional and psychosocial quality of life in
 the intervention group when compared to the control group, the study 

Welcoming the results of the study, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed,
 in a statement to The Indian Panorama, urged all the elementary schools
 of Louisiana to introduce yoga in their curriculums so that the 
students could explore various benefits yoga offered.

Yoga, referred as “a living fossil”, was
 a mental and physical discipline, for everybody to share and benefit 
from, whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE to Indus Valley 
civilization, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, 

Rajan Zed further said that yoga, 
although introduced and nourished by Hinduism, was a world heritage and 
liberation powerhouse to be utilized by all. According to Patanjali who 
codified it in Yoga Sutra, yoga was a methodical effort to attain 
perfection, through the control of the different elements of human 
nature, physical and psychical.

According to US National Institutes of 
Health, yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, 
improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress. According to a 
“2016 Yoga in America Study”, about 37 million Americans (which included
 many celebrities) now practice yoga; and yoga is strongly correlated 
with having a positive self-image.  Yoga was the repository of something
 basic in the human soul and psyche, Zed added.

Objective of the Tulane study included: 
To assess the impact of a yoga curriculum in an elementary school on 
student quality of life… benefits of introducing yoga and mindfulness 
into the classroom. Study group included 20 third-grade students of a 
public school in New Orleans who screened positive for symptoms of 
anxiety and participated in yoga/mindfulness activities for eight weeks.
 Researchers included Alessandra Bazzano, Christopher Anderson, Chelsea 
Hylton and Jeanette Gustat; reports suggest.


Tulane University in New Orleans 
(Louisiana), whose history goes back to 1834, claims to be “one of the 
most well-respected research universities in the country”. Douglas J. 
Hertz and Michael A. Fitts are Board Chair and President respectively.
