Yoga as an alternative theory method for treatment of depression and sleep disorders is an entertaining idea that I would support before treatment with medicine.

Interesting read. I hope they will actually keep this experiment going with possibily increasing trial size and having a control. The results look promising and provide another possibility in reducing major psychiatric disorders.

Insightful.  Ultimately nonconclusive at this point due to the lack of scientific rigor, but an interesting realm of future study especially as more funding is directed toward mental wellness in the light of recent events.
