Examined the effects of hatha-yoga and progressive relaxation on heart rate, blood pressure, physical self-efficacy, and self-esteem. 95 female Japanese undergraduates participated in 3 weekly treatment sessions. Both treatments were effective in lowering heart rate and blood pressure and in improving self-esteem. Perceptions of physical self-efficacy declined over time.
