There has been a rise in the number of young people engaging in high-risk and violent activities. For years, yoga-based therapies have been utilised to treat mental health issues. A mindfulness-based approach for youth aggressiveness is examined in the current study. Sociodemographic information schedule, Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire, and World Health Organization quality of life were administered on 50 subjects in the age range of 18-25 years at pre- and post-mindfulness-based program level. Anxiety and hostility decreased; physical and verbal aggressiveness decreased; and quality of life was improved at one month follow-up in the physical and environmental domains based on the results. The results of a mindfulness-based programme have shown improvements in aggressive expression and control, suggesting that it should be included in existing programmes for the treatment of youth aggression.
