The study addressed the efficacy of 12 weeks of yoga training in treating 25 patients with chronic tinnitus. Ten of the patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before and after training. A control group comprised 13 people reporting chronic tinnitus. All participants were assessed with the Tinnitus Functional Index. After the 12-week yoga course, the areas considered to have benefited most were the sense of control of tinnitus, sleep, quality of life, and intrusiveness. The MRI studies indicated that connections in the white matter of the motor cortex appeared to be stronger as a result of training. Yoga training has good potential to improve the daily functioning of patients with chronic tinnitus and can be considered a promising supporting method for tinnitus treatment.
