This study examined the influence of Stress on Public Administration Undergraduates and the Usefulness of a Yoga Therapy (YT) in relieving this problem among these students. The study comprised of 494 public administration undergraduates. 57 of them showed extreme stress (32 experimental group; 25 control group). DHFS Wellness perceived Stress Scale of 10 items developed by Cohen (1983), structured on a five-point rating scale was adapted and used for data collection. Common stressors were also documented and stated in line with its severity. The Cronbach alpha coefficient reliability was 0.82. Parametric statistics of t-test and one-way ANOVA was employed to analyze the data. The results showed a significant high level of stress among public administration students. The mean stress level at pre-test between undergraduates in the experimental and control groups showed no significant difference (U = 47.00, p= 0.361). YT was revealed to be significantly suitable for stress management among public administration undergraduates as evidenced to significant improvements in their post-test (27±4.77) and follow-up (21±2.64) mean stress scores in relation to the pre-test
