The International Wellbeing Study & Yoga

Posted 13 years, 2 months ago    0 comments

We have been conducting a large online international study investigating peoples’ wellbeing called - The International Wellbeing Study. This study has been running since March 2009 and basically investigates peoples' wellbeing over the course of one year. Since its inception, we have been, and are aiming to, specifically investigate the wellbeing of yoga participants, and how their wellbeing changes over a year as not much is known about this.

For the future intake in September 2010, we are targeting yoga participants in particular, and thus it would be great if we could get as many people as possible to participate in this. This study is completely anonymous, easy to do, takes about 25 to 30 minutes for each assessment point, and participants don’t have to give any of their personal details. The only participation requirements is that participants are at least 16 years old and that they agree to fill out these questions every three months for a year; five times in total. Go to  to participate and/or find out more about the study.

Importantly, the “study code” for this specific population to input into this survey is "YOGA" which individuals type in at the beginning of the survey when prompted. If a person participates, he or she will receive an e-mail summary report of their scores, and also go into the draw to win one of fifteen $100 vouchers. They will also be given the opportunity to opt-in to one of three free wellbeing orientated internet courses after they have completed the first three assessments.
