Eight adults diagnosed with Moderate Alzheimer Dementia by an interdisciplinary health team from the Fundación Cardio Infantil (Hospital in Bogota), and with score of five in the Global Deterioration Scale (GDS), participated in this study. Descriptive statistics was used to make comparisons in measurements taken before and after the Hatha Yoga program and inferential statistics were used to test hypotheses.
