Yoga vs. Depression

Yoga May Elevate Brain GABA Levels, Suggesting Possible Treatment For Depression

"Our findings clearly demonstrate that in experienced yoga practitioners, brain GABA levels increase after a session of yoga,"

I've always felt (on some intuitive level) that my exercising (Jazzercise originally, Yoga these days) is my way of dealing with depression. Interesting to see this sort of thing being studied and corroborated scientifically.
