Indirect evidence supported these results, obtained from studies about breathing involving
meditation (Lutz et al., 2009) and yoga training (Velikonja et al.,
2010). In previous studies, both long-term intervention (MacLean et al., 2010),
lasting for weeks, and short-term (Tang et al., 2007) intervention, for a few days,
were effective. A structural change was proposed according to the autonomic nervous evidence, and was supported by an absence of age-related gray matter decline in senior
yoga practitioners, as seen on structural MRI (Villemure et al., 2015).
All these results suggested that the prefrontal cortex served
as the predominant commander, supervising the activity from
the limbic system, and modulating the activity of the autonomic nervous system.
Emotional improvements have been reported to be the most obvious benefit of mind-body interventions (Stromberg et al., 2015).

It has been suggested that the detrimental effects of stress and negative
emotions could be counteracted by different forms of breathing techniques, meditation,
and relaxation (Jerath et al., 2015), as well as by yoga and TCC (Benson,
1996; Telles et al., 2000; Oakley and Evans, 2014). A non-randomized study suggested that a 1-week breathing practice decreased
the mean of Post-traumatic Checklist-17 (PCL-17), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-21), General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12) in survivors of the 2004 South-East
Asia tsunami.
