The objective of this study was to assess and quantify the extent of the benefits of the YOI protocols, that were made accessible through a novel YOI mobile application program. Traditionally the complete practices of YOI have, for many centuries, only been passed on through in-person sessions. The results demonstrated that depression and anxiety-related symptoms caused by the prolonged impact of physical distancing, stay-at-home orders and the morbidity associated with the COVID-19 disease, were significantly reduced the YOI app delivered interventions and assessment on-demand, overcoming barriers of time, cost and accessibility.

Clinical insomnia rates have reportedly increased in recent times compared to the pre-COVID-19 era. Various factors such as the imposition of travel restrictions, social distancing measures, the spread of the disease worldwide and barriers to healthcare access, have caused unexpected psychological challenges in the form of emotional distress, stress and especially clinical insomnia. Statistical analysis showed that regular use of the YOI app was a novel and effective method which significantly improved insomnia symptoms among all age groups and both genders.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant psychological challenges globally. Evidence has been mounting of greater emotional distress and possible worsening of underlying psychiatric disorders, due to repercussions of COVID-19. In addition, the pandemic has created barriers to access for help, due to social distancing and travel restrictions. Thus, creating a major need for effective interventions that can be accessed safely from home and provide coping tools which can be learned and practiced while in isolation. An App based Yoga of Immortals (YOI) program is one such strategy to help cope with stressful situations. The objective of this study was to investigate if the YOI program can provide significant benefit for depressive and insomnia symptoms.
