Improved performance in the Tower of London test following yoga. Indian Journal of Physiological Pharmacology, 45, 351-354. This paper reports on an experiment conducted to compare the influence of several weeks of yoga training with several weeks of nonyoge-based physical training. Children randomly assigned to the yoge condition performed better on a standard problem-solving test used to assess cognitive function.

"Schools have also begun experimenting with the practice and discovering that its techniques can help its students. When a school in New Haven, Connecticut, required yoga and meditation classes three times a week for its incoming freshman, studies found that after each class, students had significantly reduced levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, in their bodies. In San Francisco, schools that participated in Quiet Time, a Transcendental Meditation program, had twice as many students score proficient in English on the California Achievement Test then in similer schools where the program didn't exist. Visitacion Valley Middle School specifically reduced suspensions by 45 percent during the program's first year. Attendance rates climbed to 98 percent, grade point averages improved, and the school recorded the highest happiness levels in San Francisco on the annual California Healthy Kids Survey. Other studies have shown that mindfulness education programs improved students' self-control, attentiveness and respect for other classmates, enhanced the school climate, and improved teachers' moods" (The Atlantic).

Benefits of Yoga and Mindfulness for Children

Plenty of research has been done on mindfulness meditation and yoga techniques. The best predictor of the validity of any research is the meta-analysis. Meta-analysis is a study of multiple experiments/trials in a certain area and if the cumulative results indicate that a certain technique solves a certain problem, then it is considered solid evidence. The meta-analysis in [1] proves beyond doubt that meditation can reduce psychological stress, anxiety and improve overall mental and physical well-being.


Several experiments have been conducted on yoga techniques as well. One of those experiments have been listed in [2] which compares the influence of several weeks of yoga training with several weeks of non yoga-based physical training and it shows children randomly assigned to the yoga condition performed better on a standard problem-solving test used to assess cognitive function.
