From the start of the survey until the third month, the subjects were told that any sports can work on what they liked. And during the remaining three months I was instructed to systematically do yoga including breathing, yoga posture, and meditation (meiosis). Subjects were instructed by the lecturers to conduct the yoga program three times a week, and also recommended to do yoga at home everyday. During the investigation, the pulse of the subject was measured by the electrocardiogram, and interviews were conducted on depressive symptoms and the quality of life.
On average, the incidence of arrhythmias decreased to 1/2 by performing yoga, depressed symptoms and depressed mood remarkably lightened. He also said that motor skills and vitality were also improved. These results led us to the conclusion that yoga has a great influence on arranging the patient 's pulse, not only improving the quality of life, but also improving the quality of life.
