Abstract

The role of IAYT started at mid gestation and continued until delivery is evaluated and the results were compared to a matched control group, who were similar in patient characteristics. The results were analyzed under three titles. This study supports the concept that, introduction of yoga into obstetrical practice provides a low cost, low risk intervention with benefit in pregnancy outcome and high patient compliance.
