Research on Yoga & Meditation (3/24)

These links come from various sources – at the moment, many come from following yoga-related organizations on Facebook. I am to make a research post like this once a week, with links I found over the past week – and which I hope to be current or recent research. Time does not allow me to read each article in depth, so discussion, debate, and comments are welcome!
