Hormonal effects of Tai Chi / Qigong / Yoga
New to this forum and glad to have found it.
As some of you may know, Amy Cuddy, the Harvard researched, seems to have shown that “power poses” increased testosterone, and decrease cortisol levels, while increasing confidence. This is somehow similar to effects of NLP’s physiology of excellence.
I suspect that ancient practices such as Tai Chi or Yoga may have some effects on hormonal levels, as well as the subjective experience of the practitioner.
I wonder if there is any study showing the effects of Tai chi, Qigong or Yoga on hormonal levels?
Appreciate your thoughts and comments.
