Yoga has been proven to help with many health issues and stress management. People who practice yoga report that they feel more relaxed almost immediately and science now says there is a physiological explanation. Cortisol which is a stress hormone gets either relieved or reduced which gives immediate results.
Off late, it is been proved that 16 healthy new yogis participated in a fifty-minute yoga class every day for seven days. On the day prior to their first class, they were requested to read and write for 50 minutes. During the sitting period cortisol, hormone level didn't change but post the yoga class the cortisol hormone level changed drastically. So the stress is relieved immediately
