Introduction: Yoga as a holistic mind-body intervention is increasingly evaluated for the management of various autism symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Methodology: Forty-three children with ASD from 4 special schools were randomized into two groups, yoga group: 23 children and control group: 20 children. The yoga group received 12 weeks of yoga intervention in special schools. Results: Significant improvement in the yoga group was noted in the overall autism severity (P < 0.001) as reported by the parents in comparison to the control group. Conclusion: The findings of the study show that yoga can have a positive impact on the symptomatology of autism.
