This single subject AB design was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of yoga therapy on the motor skills, well-being, and attention for two 11 year old fraternal twins with cerebral palsy. The principal investigator collected baseline data five times over the course of one week, and once per week for 10 weeks during the intervention phase. During intervention, the children participated in a yoga program three times per week Results of the study indicate that the yoga program produced significant improvements in active range of motion for both participants and postural stability for one participant. No significant differences were indicated for all other measurements; however non-significant improvements in motor skills, well-being, and attention are discussed.
