Abstract
This study investigates the potential therapeutic effects of Pranayama, a yogic breathing practice, on anxiety levels among clients diagnosed with Myocardial Infarction (MI). Myocardial Infarction, commonly known as a heart attack, is a critical cardiovascular event often accompanied by heightened psychological distress, particularly anxiety. The study aims to explore whether the incorporation of Pranayama into the rehabilitation process can contribute to a reduction in anxiety levels and overall improvement in the well-being of individuals recovering from MI. The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative measures such as standardized anxiety scales with qualitative insights gathered through interviews and subjective reports. A sample of MI patients undergoing cardiac rehabilitation will be randomly assigned to either a control group following standard rehabilitation protocols or an experimental group incorporating Pranayama exercises into their routine. The study duration will extend over a specified period, allowing for a comprehensive analysis of the potential impact of Pranayama on anxiety levels. The anticipated outcomes of this study may provide valuable insights into the adjunctive role of Pranayama in the holistic management of post-MI patients. Findings from this research could contribute to the development of evidence-based interventions that not only address the physical aspects of myocardial infarction but also consider the psychological well-being of the affected individuals. Ultimately, this investigation may offer a novel and integrative approach to enhance the overall recovery process for clients with Myocardial Infarction.
