Abstract
Many medical studies demonstrate the benefits of yoga, however social sciences focus more rarely on the links between yoga and well-being. Starting from an anthropological approach, this article presents a study that connects the subjective discourses of yoga practitioners with the objective data on well-being (through heart and respiratory rates). Save for the presentation of this experimentation, the discussion will allow us to discover the contribution of each approach, but also to emphasize the variations according the level and the type of received with practitioners having learnt the same breathing technique.
