Yoga can certainly help with relaxation and taking stress away, but will not treat the cause of lack of concentration. He might have undiagnosed ADHD inattentive presenting if he has no hyperactivity. Also, anxiety (especially performance anxiety), depression, and other stress can cause the lack of concentration. He needs to be evaluated for the causes.
Also, If the problem is with ADHD, then the problem with concentration can be visible in the tasks that are boring or not interesting for the person, while if they are interested in some tasks, they can have good attention and concentration.

If children regress with their toilet training, it can be physiological or psychological. First thing is to get him evaluated by a pediatrician to exclude focal causes. Also, it has to be monitored if he is doing it only at night or has accidents during the day.
Psychologically, it can signify trauma. And it has to be assessed by a psychologist or psychiatrist. Trauma for children can be very insignificant in adults eyes, but something as small as seeing a dead bird on the street can cause psychological trauma in children.

PMDD (PreMenstrual Dysphoric Disorder) is when women have mood symptoms several days before onset of menses and usually with onset of menses it get better or disappear.
Some antidepressant meds approved for that, or some women may take oral contraceptive tablets to manage symptoms.
However, your daughter needs to be evaluated by pediatrician for that and follow instructions.
I do not recommend starting ANY medications without contacting your doctor.
