AUTHOR(S): Dr. Geeta Sidharth
University examinations have always been associated with huge amounts of stress in young high school students. Yoga and breathing techniques have also been considered effective tools to achieve physical and psychological health among students. Most research on yoga in relation to stress has been conducted in stable conditions and with no immediate intimidation. At the end of 2021, high school students in India were suddenly made subject to a mandatory university entrance examination - the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). This research has been undertaken with an objective to investigate the impact of practicing yoga and breathing exercises on the stress level of high school students aspiring for university admissions in an intimidating situation i.e. CUET. Findings show that practicing yoga and breathing techniques has a significant negative correlation with and impact on CUET-induced intimidating stress in high school students. Gender and class are also found significant in correlation and multiple regression analysis. The results would help the academic institutions, researchers and practitioners in designing yoga interventions to combat stress in students.
