  • Abstract

    Aim: Memory is an ability to recall past events or previously learned information or skills. Yoga is considered a mind and body practice with historical origin. Yoga engages both the top-down and bottom-up systems. By coordinating breath with movement, we become increasingly more aware of the physical and mental events that shape our experience and are better able to focus and sustain attention. Yoga involves the integration of physical movement with breath awareness and helps in achieving focus. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was prepared, and the survey was conducted among college students. The questionnaire was given individually to each of them to avoid discussion among them and also to avoid false results; thereby no bias is evidenced in this study. Each of them were given 1 h to complete the questionnaire. Results: The data were statistically analyzed. The survey consists of 107 participants. Yoga helps in improvement of lung functioning. Conclusion: Yoga involves the integration of physical movement with breath awareness and helps in achieving focus. Thus, from this survey, we come to know that yoga plays an important role in improving memory
