Here is some scientific literature related to this topic:

1. Efficacy of yoga for mental performance in university students.

With growing scientific evidence, yoga is emerging as an important health behavior-lifestyle modifying module to achieve holistic health at physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual levels. Brain wave coherence (BWC) recordings from the surface of the skull are associated with different cognitive processes and plays both critical and useful roles in yoga with wide range of functional significance. The psycho-physiological changes that characterize the efficacy of yoga for better mental performance in university students have not been studied adequately. BWC study showed significant increase in both Delta and Alpha wave coherence suggesting that Integrated Yoga Module can result in improvement of coherent and integrated brain functioning among students, thus paving the way for their better mental performance.

2. Yoga therapy for promoting emotional sensitivity in University students

Students need emotional intelligence (EI) for their better academic excellence. There are three important psychological dimensions of EI: Emotional sensitivity (ES), emotional maturity (EM) and emotional competency (EC), which motivate students to recognize truthfully, interpret honestly and handle tactfully the dynamics of their behavioral pattern. The present study suggests that yoga instructor's course can result in improvement of ES among university students, thus paving the way for their academic success.

3. Efficacy of Yoga for sustained attention in university students.

Sustained attention (SA) is a vital function mediated by the right frontal - parietal cortex. The digit vigilance test (DVT) measures SA. Assessment of SA in students for their academic excellence is considered to be an essential part of a neuropsychological evaluation. The present study suggests that Integrated Yoga Module can result in improvement of SA among students, thus paving the way for their academic excellence. 

4. Yoga improves attention and self-esteem in underprivileged girl student.

The present study suggests that of Integrated Yoga Module can result in improvement of attention and self-esteem among students and thereby enhancing their mental health and can help them in improving their academic achievement. Efforts aimed at reducing mental health problems among students may focus more on implementing effective and culturally acceptable interventions, such as Yoga, counseling, and social support.

It may be concluded from the finding of the study that with the intervention of yoga, academic performance improves by optimizing the stress levels. So it is suggested that yoga module should become a regular feature in the schools.
