Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

We are looking for caregivers and their loved ones with early stage Alzheimer's disease who may like to participate in a study about therapeutic yoga!

This study will be conducted at Clemson University by Principal Investigator Dr. Marieke Van Puymbroeck. Participation in exercise programs have been shown to improve various aspects of health for caregivers and their recipients. The Alzheimer's Association and Clemson Researchers invite you to participate in therapeutic yoga with the goal of improving your quality of life.

This study may be right for you if you:

  • Are an informal (unpaid) caregiver
  • Would like to take part in a yoga program along with their loved one with early stage Alzheimer's disease
  • Are able to sit unassisted in a chair
  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Speak English
  • Are willing to commit to yoga practice two times a week for 8 weeks
