New Orleans: People who suffer from irregular heartbeat could see their episodes cut in half if they do yoga regularly, according to a study released in the United States.Doing yoga three times a week also reduced depression and anxiety while boosting people`s opinion of their own social and mental well-being, said the research presented at a New Orleans cardiology conference on Saturday."It appears yoga has a significant impact on helping to regulate patients` heart beat and improves their overall quality of life," said lead study author Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, associate professor of medicine at the University of Kansas Hospital.The study followed 49 patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation, an irregular heart rhythm condition that arises when the heart`s natural electrical signals fire off in a disorganized way, causing the heart to quiver.
