Abstract
Background : Modern age is the age of Ďanxiety and stressí, which is posing a great challenge to the health of society. Stresses of modern life precipitate various cardiovascular and other disorders by distorting basic neuroendocrine mechanism and poses risk to cardiovascular system. Objectives : The objectives for the study were to assess effect of yoga practices on anxiety score (using Taylorís manifest anxiety scale) and resting heart rate. Methods: Study group included subjects who participated in yoga practices for a period of 3 months. Control group included subjects who did not perform yoga or any exercise. Anxiety score and resting heart rate were recorded in both the groups before start of study and at end of the study. Anxiety score was estimated with the help of Taylorís manifest anxiety scale questionnaire and resting heart rate was estimated by using electrocardiogram (ECG). Collected data was analysed using Mann Whitney test and paired Ďtítest.
Results: At the end of three months statistically significant decrease in anxiety score and resting heart rate was observed in the study group. Whereas, there was no statistically significant difference in anxiety score and resting heart rate of control group. Conclusion& Interpretation: It is evident from the study that yoga practices of even short duration (3 months) can reduce anxiety status and decrease resting heart rate. This probably indicates that parasympathetic activity was increased while sympathetic activity was decreased with yoga practices in young subjects.

Key words: Yoga, Anxiety Score, Heart rate

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
