Study Summary

The investigators propose to compare the effects of a 16-week specially designed yoga program to a power-based resistance training program on affect trait mindfulness, anxiety, depression, functionality, and quality of life. As secondary measures, we propose to compare the effects of these exercise programs on measures of executive function (EF), sleep, disease stage, motor symptoms, muscle quality, rigidity, strength, power, and mobility.
