Abstract
Methods A repeated measures design was employed where thirty female college-aged participants (Mage=20.1, sd =1.95) completed three counterbalanced testing sessions: a yoga session, an aerobic exercise session, and a baseline assessment. Participants were presented with the state sub-form of the Spielberger’s State Trait Anxiety Inventory and a list of 40 words immediately after the exercise sessions. They completed a free recall and a recognition task where the 40 words were randomly intermixed with 40 new words.
