dc.description.abstract The purpose of this randomized control trial is to determine the effects of Hatha yoga classes and meditation on the stress levels and sleep quality of college students over a four-week duration. Vanessa Villate 2015 reported participants feeling more refreshed upon waking, feeling less distressed, and having a greater capacity to cope with daily life after participating in yoga and breathing techniques. Participants 18-22 years of age with no prior experience that report poor sleep quality and high stress levels on sleep and stress surveys will be randomized into two groups. The test group will undergo one-hour yoga classes twice a week, then retake the sleep and stress surveys. After the initial four weeks, the wait listed control group will then undergo the same steps. The hypothesis is that within as little as four weeks of participating in yoga, participants will see a significant improvement in sleep quality and stress.
