Özet

Introduction: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness characterized by symptoms including hearing voices or seeing objects that do not exist, weak emotional reactions, and inadequate social relations. Schizophrenia is a long-term disease that is usually treated with anti-psychotic drugs. However, medication alone is insufficient for the treatment of patients with schizophrenia and alternative methods are needed. The aim of this study was to determine the effect that yoga has on the clinical insight and medication adherence in patients with schizophrenia.
