For the study, a team of researchers reviews 18 studies with 846 participants concerning effects of numerous mind-body practices, such as yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, and mindfulness, on gene expression.

Having analyzed the received data, the scientists discovered that people practicing mind-body practices have the reduced production of a molecule called nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), which regulated gene expression.

Study leader Ivana Buric of the Centre for Psychology at Coventry University in the United Kingdom says: “Millions of people around the world already enjoy the health benefits of mind-body interventions like yoga or meditation, but what they perhaps don't realize is that these benefits begin at a molecular level and can change the way our genetic code goes about its business.”
