Yoga Better than Exercise for Improving Focus, Retention and Speed, says Study
A research carried out by a group of researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine has found yoga to be better than exercise in improving memory, speed and focus.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers carried out an experiment. Lead researcher Neha Gothe said that they enlisted 30 women in the experiment and asked them to complete 20-minute yoga session.
The yoga session included seated, standing yoga postures with breathing exercises. Another group was asked to complete aerobic session, which included treadmill, as well. Gothe said that they were instructed to maintain 60% to 70% of their heart rate throughout their exercise session.
After both the sessions were done, study researchers asked them to take part in the memory and inhibitory control test. Main aim of the test was to assess the focus, speed and retention of the subjects.
When test results were assessed, it was found that those, who took part in yoga, were more accurate in their test. "It appears that following yoga practice, the participants were better able to focus their mental resources, process information quickly, more accurately and also learn, hold and update pieces of information more effectively", said study researchers.
