Yoga and optimism: The associations between mental health measures and yoga use


There is promising evidence that yoga might be beneficial for coping with negative life events. We will determine the associations of yoga use with optimism and perceived control in life, psychological well-being (incl. anxiety, depression, and stress), and satisfaction among mid-aged Australian women. We will further determine whether yoga mediates the associations between traumatic life events and mental health.
