The study lasts 14 weeks. Participants complete initial baseline testing (4-5 hours) and are then enrolled in either a group-based yoga training group or a one on one computerized brain training. Each group meets twice a week for 12 weeks (24 sessions). Participants also complete follow-up testing (4-5 hours).
