The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of hatha and relaxation yoga on obesity, blood pressure, and quality of life. Seventy healthy women and men aged 18 years or older completed a survey. A statistically significant body mass index for obesity (30.0) was observed (P < .001). A significantly lower systolic blood pressure was detected in the 1- to 4-year yoga participant group as compared to the less than 1 year yoga group (P <.023). The mean Total Mood Disturbance score was -5.04, indicating the survey participants scored a positive mood state. Hatha and relaxation yoga had a statistically significant role in controlling weight, hypertension, and mood.
