Improve Memory after a Stroke or TBI through Yoga

Improve Memory and Quality of Life with Yoga

Yoga has great popularity as holistic addition for neurorehabilitation for stroke, TBI, and acquired brain injury (ABI) patients based on its plethora of potential benefits. 

A 2019 systematic review on six studies reported improvements in 4 major areas for persons with ABI:

  • Psychological adjustment
  • Physical adjustment
  • Quality of life
  • Respiratory functioning

Improvements for stroke persons specifically were:

  • Physical recovery
  • Memory recovery
  • Self-efficacy 
  • Quality of life

“Yoga is a holistic practice that – when incorporated effectively into neurorehabilitation – has potential to meet the complex needs of persons with acquired brain injury (ABI).”

We know that stroke and traumatic brain injury has a major impact not only on the individual, but their family, loved ones, and community. It can impair your cognitive functioning, physical ability and mobility, and your mental health and wellbeing. You may have physical impacts like one side weakness or paralysis, speech difficulties, or limited mobility. This makes finding a yoga class tailored specifically for stroke and TBI survivors crucial.

Our classes at Unalome Lotus are completed completely online to afford you access regardless of your location and all classes are catered specifically toward stroke and TBI recovery. Learn more about our online chair yoga classes here or give us a call at 720-505-4015!
