A randomized controlled trial with active sleep hygiene comparison
Dr. Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, Ph.D., KRI’s Director of Research, has concluded a trial of Kundalini Yoga for chronic insomnia. The results of his research have been published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine or JCSM.
The conclusions stated in the JCSM website, “Yoga, taught in a self-care framework with minimal instructor burden, was associated with self-reported improvements above and beyond an active sleep hygiene comparison, sustained at 6-month follow-up. Follow-up studies are needed to assess actigraphy and polysomnography outcomes, as well as possible mechanisms of change.”
