ARPF Research Published in a Neurology Magazine

Brain & Life, Neurology for Everyday Living, discussed ARPF’s research on the cognitive benefits of Kirtan Kriya meditation. Below is a snippet from the article.

Boost Memory And Cognition

People with neurologic conditions such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease experience depression, memory loss, and cognitive problems. But meditation may help mitigate some of those effects, according to a small 2016 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. When adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI)— a precursor to dementia practiced either Kirtan Kriya, a type of yoga meditation, for 12 minutes at home each day and attended a one-hour weekly Kundalini yoga class or did memory enhancement exercises, those who practiced meditation and yoga reported statistically significant lower rates of depression after 12 weeks than those who did memory enhancement exercises. Furthermore, yoga and meditation were as effective as memory enhancement training in improving visuospatial memory among older adults.


ARPF’s research has shown the powerful effects of Kirtan Kriya on memory, brain function, genetic health, inflammation, mood, depression, sleep, spirituality, and quality of life. These simple and affordable exercises are the only proven way to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
