Abstract

Ego Strength (ES), Malingering (Mp), and Anxiety (Anx) are psychiatric signs that the severity of each individual is different, especially the condition of a person in a particular activity group, so it is interesting to study. The purpose of this study was to determine the ego strength (ES), positive malingering (Mp), and anxiety (Anx) in the Energetic Power Yoga training participants in Malang. The research method was carried out qualitatively and analyzed using the Strauss-Corbin paradigm data triangulation method, consisting of 5 research samples. The measuring instrument used was the MMPI-2 test, which is a standard test tool that can measure the high and low aspects of research that are regulated by its reliability and validity. The results showed that four subjects had lower ego strength, while one subject had better ego strength. The low level of ego strength in 4 items indicates that the motivation to participate in yoga merely because of a lifestyle or influence from friends. The Mp test showed that two subjects tried to perform better, and the value of the positive malingering of the other three subjects was low. The anxiety in the two subjects was high, while on the other three subjects were low, which means that trainees who practiced yoga had positive impacts in reducing anxiety. The conclusion is that yoga could reduce anxiety.
