The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of yoga on stress and anxiety levels within the OT college student population compared to a matched control group performing physical exercise alone. Findings supported the use of yoga as a stress-reduction tool. This research aligns with previously reported literature stating that yoga has a positive impact in reducing stress levels and suggests that academic programs implement scheduled stress management curricula for students.
