* Yoga vs control group

anginal episodes per week (6.73 vs 412.1) On treadmill testing also. These patients could exercise for shorter duration (349147 vs 430119 seconds P=0.056) and had more ST segment depression (2.60.6 vs 2.20.05 mm P=0.04)

The compliance score varied from 50 to 95% (mean 79.514.5%) Sixty seven percent patients had a compliance score of 80% ore more. The results on various outcome variables are summarized in Table II.
