According to Dr. M. Javnbakht, from the Psychiatry Department from Islamic Azad University in Iran, taking part in yoga classes for two months can immensely reduce anxiety in people with anxiety disorders. In their paper, which was published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice, the researchers say that ‘’yoga can be considered as a complementary therapy or an alternative method for medical therapy in the treatment of anxiety disorders.” Another study on the same paper, by the Division of Yoga & Life Sciences at the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation in India, explored the effect of yoga on lower back pain.They did a seven-day randomized control trial at a holistic health center, with 80 patients who have chronic lower back pain. They made  two groups – yoga therapy and physical therapy. Their results showed that practicing yoga is more effective than physical therapy at reducing pain, anxiety and depression, and improving spinal mobility.
