Impact of yoga Nidra on psychological variables in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

AUTHOR(S): Surya Jothi N, Dr. CV Jayanthy and Dr. S Natarajan
ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the study was to investigate the impact of yoga Nidra on psychological variables in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age, characterized by hormonal imbalances leading to various symptoms including irregular menstrual cycles, ovarian cysts, and metabolic disturbances. Psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, and depression often accompany PCOS due to its complex hormonal and metabolic effects.
To conduct this study, thirty middle-aged women employed as private school teachers in Thanjavur were randomly selected as subjects. They were then divided into two equal groups: an experimental group and a control group. The experimental group underwent yoga Nidra practice for a duration of twelve weeks, while the control group did not participate in any specific training or intervention.
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation and relaxation technique that involves systematic relaxation of the body and mind, leading to a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. It is known for its therapeutic benefits in reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and improving overall well-being.
