Yoga and meditation have reportedly been successfully included by the British SAS into their training to improve soldiers’ mental toughness, stress management, and recovery times.
The British Army’s elite Special Air Service (SAS) has reportedly been incorporating yoga and meditation into its training regime. The aim of the practice is to enhance soldiers’ focus, relaxation, and mental resilience, making them better equipped to handle the stresses of combat. According to reports, the SAS has been testing the effectiveness of the technique in a program called “Project Regeneration.” The program is said to have been successful, with soldiers reporting increased energy levels, reduced stress, and faster recovery times. The use of yoga and meditation in military training has become increasingly common in recent years, with some advocates arguing that it can improve soldiers’ performance and well-being.
