Abstract: A study utilizing a college sample compared psychological responses to yoga, water aerobics, and walking. Measurement variables included anxiety, exertion, pain, arousal, and mood. Anxiety was reduced for all modalities, with greatest reduction for water aerobics. Exertion was similar for all modalities suggesting all trials were of similar intensity. Pain was greatest for yoga when compared to the other modalities. Arousal was lowest after yoga and mood was more positive after walking and water aerobics. Results indicate that all modalities provide psychological benefit and institutions of higher education are encouraged to promote these types of wellness activities. **********
