Charles Garfield, Ph.D says in his book “Peak Performance” of the research at the Menninger Foundation, "They found that the yogis were able to voluntarily alter their brain waves,heart rates,body temperatures, and other metabolic processes ordinarily considered to be regulated by the autonomic nervous system, but that the ability to voluntarily control these processes could be taught to others with little difficulty in relatively short time

Hey Gordon,

I had Charles Garfield's book and cassette series that he did with Nightingale-Conant back in the late 1980's. It's hard to believe that 30 years has come and gone but it has.

Anyway, what Garfield stated about the Yogi's was just as true then as it is today. There are yogis that have established complete control over heart rate, respiration and complete temperature control beyond what anyone had believed to be possible. Another good place to read some these seemingly miraculous powers is found in 'Autobiography of a Yogi' by Paramahansa Yogananda.

Mental focus and direction through Yoga & meditation or Isometrics is the same imho. Isometrics resembles Yoga in many ways.
