Japanese Students Turn to Yoga & Meditation

Supermodel-turned philanthropist Petra Nemcova credits meditation with saving her life during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami -- and yoga and meditation are helping Japanese students deal with this latest tragedy.

The Times of India reports:
"The feeling of inner peace and empowerment that comes with yoga and the vedic principles, continues to help us get through this difficult period," said Michika Inuzuka, a 34-year-old software engineer from Osaka, Japan. Michika does not like watching television and was late to realise the extent of the actual catastrophe in Japan. Her major concern was about her sister living in Tokyo and her friends in Osaka.
