First study to investigate the effects of Kundalini yoga (KY) training on mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
Global population aging will result in increasing rates of cognitive decline and dementia. Thus, effective, low-cost, and low side-effect interventions for the treatment and prevention of cognitive decline are urgently needed. Our study is the first to investigate the effects of Kundalini yoga (KY) training on mild
cognitive impairment (MCI).
