ESCOBAR ZURITA, Eileen Rosa; HERRERA CISNEROS, Silvia Patricia  y  OBREGON VELOZ, Iván Ernesto. Teaching of Yoga as a technique to reduce stress levels in undergraduate students of the Faculty of Public Health. Rev Cuba Reumatol [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.2, e84.  Epub 01-Ago-2019. ISSN 1817-5996.

To pursue a university career involves a series of physical and mental efforts for students of this educational level. The partial and semester evaluation activities mean that students are subject to stress levels that in many cases exceed the adaptive capacities of individuals, thus generating clinical manifestations that diminish their intellectual capacity and therefore their academic performance. From this concept derives the importance of minimizing the levels of stress in university students to maintain the correct biopsychosocial balance. Yoga is a thousand-year-old relaxation technique that has been used with good results to minimize levels of stress in different population groups; Its teaching and implementation in university students is a viable alternative that can represent short-term stress reduction and maximize the academic performance of students.
