Nonpharmacological treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is often requested by parents of children with ADHD. Yoga is an al-ternative option with increasing avail-ability and acceptance in the Western world. This review examines the cur-rent evidence for yoga as a primary or adjunctive treatment for ADHD in children and adolescents. There is some preliminary support for the benefit of yoga as an adjunctive treatment for ADHD symptoms in children, but large controlled studies are warranted to establish efficacy for yoga as an al-ternative treatment for ADHD in chil-dren and adolescents.
