Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of yoga in attention, concentration, and memory of medical students.
Materials and Methods: A total of 100 healthy medical students in the age group of 17–23 were considered for the study. They were trained to practice yoga technique for 12 weeks, and their attention, concentration, and memory were assessed using Postgraduate Institute memory scale before and after intervention at Annapoorana Medical College, Salem, Tamil Nadu, India.
Results: The results showed statistically significant improvement in attention, concentration, and memory of yoga group (P < 0.001) when compared with the control group.
