I've listed some ways in which yoga reduces stress, apart from giving you the "High"(secretion of certain stress-busting neurotransmitters) that is common to all forms of exercise.Hope it answers your question: 1) Yoga loosens up tight joints, sending fresh blood everywhere to reduce the physical effects of stress in our body. 2) It increases digestion, reduces craving for junk food and helps you get a good night's sleep. 3) Holding postures for a long time increases concentration and reduces anxiety. It also increases clarity of thought. 4) Inversion postures like Headstand and Shoulder stand reverse blood flow, increasing the amount of blood flow to our brains, stimulate glands (controlling our hormones) and have been shown to reduce the degree of mental illnesses, including stress. 5) Pranayama - Breathing control, slows down breathing and reduces elevated pulse rate, which in turn reduces chronic stress. 6)Finally, both asana and pranayama prepares our body and mind for gaining maximum benefits from meditation, the one biggest stress buster. read less

Vivekchettri , that is a nice question. Yoga is all about bringing into harmony the body with your mind, and this is done through the Breath. In asanas or postures, one focuses on the breath as the body moves. In pranayama, the breath is deep and under control. In meditation, you begin by praandharna i.e. focusing on every breath and through this route, you quieten the mind. So, all these forms of yoga help you relief stress. read less

Doing Pranayam alone helps one to overcome stress in yoga. Asanas with breathing pattern also helps some extent. Pranayama is of mostly 5 types - in that Nadisuddi pranayama with Deep n steady inhalation and Deep n steady Exalation will helps a lot, to come down our thoughts.
