Healing the Mind and Body: How 60 Minutes of Hot Yoga Can Alleviate Depression

In the midst of our hectic lives, taking an hour for yourself might seem like a luxury. But what if I told you that those 60 minutes could be the key to alleviating the heavy burden of depression? 


Recent groundbreaking research has revealed the transformative potential of Hot Yoga for adults battling moderate to severe depression. This is profound research when you consider that over 17 million adults in the U.S. experienced at least one major depressive episode in the past year.   


This clinical study revealed that participants who engaged in heated yoga sessions at least once a week experienced a remarkable 50% or greater reduction in their depressive symptoms. 


A team of dedicated researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital conducted the study with 80 patients struggling with depression. The participants were divided into two groups: one group practiced 90-minute sessions of Bikram yoga in a sweltering 105-degree room, while the other group was placed on a waiting list. 


The research unfolded over eight weeks, with consistent follow-ups to monitor progress. 


According to Dr. David Mischoulon, director of the Depression Clinical and Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, 'People who received the heated yoga intervention experienced a significantly greater improvement in depressive symptoms. They received these benefits by attending only approximately one class per week. 


At the study's conclusion, an astonishing revelation emerged. Over half of the yoga participants experienced a 50% or greater reduction in their depressive symptoms, in stark contrast to a mere 6.3% of the waitlisted participants. Furthermore, a remarkable 44% of the yoga participants saw such a substantial reduction in their depressive symptoms that they were considered to be in remission. 


While more research is needed to solidify these findings, the marriage of heat and yoga shows promise as a potential remedy for moderate to severe depression.
