After 12 weeks of YMLI, there was significant improvement in both cardinal and metabotrophic biomarkers of cellular aging compared to baseline values (Table 3).
After 12 weeks of YMLI, we also noted significantly reduced BMI in the study population (p < 0.01).
The results of this study highlight the positive impact of YMLI on biomarkers of cellular aging and in promoting cellular longevity through changes in both cardinal and metabotrophic biomarkers.
Genomic stability is central to cellular longevity and disease-free youthful healthy life and the findings from our study suggest the reduction of genomic instability (decreased levels of 8-OH2dG) by YMLI. Unhealthy social habits (smoking, excess alcohol intake, etc.), sedentary lifestyle, exposure to environmental pollutants, and intake of processed and nutritionally depleted food have taken a toll on human health, with the onset of lifestyle diseases at a much younger age [3-5].
The reduction of DNA damage by YMLI suggests the potential of yoga in activating the DDR pathway to repair genomic damage and improve genomic stability, and changes in metabotrophic factors seen in the study may be associated with these benefits.
Maintaining telomere length through regulation of telomere metabolism contributes to genomic stability, and the reduction in telomere attrition (increase in telomere length and telomerase activity levels) shown by our study after YMLI suggests the potential for yoga in telomere metabolism and cellular longevity.

Our study suggests that improvement in maintenance of balance in cellular oxidative stress (decrease in ROS and increase in TAC) by YMLI. Supraphysiological ROS levels are due to endogenous and exogenous factors like smoking, excess alcohol consumption, exposure to electromagnetic radiation, infection, xenobiotic exposure, and psychological stress [48].
Improvement in stress and inflammatory response in our study after YMLI may be mediated by changes in cortisol, [beta]-endorphin, IL-6, and other factors, with regulation by changes in brain through hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.
Lifestyle is an integrated entity, and an intervention, like YMLI, that has overall positive influence on our health appears most useful versus changing only one aspect at a time, as is seen by action of certain drugs.
