Have you ever wanted to turn your body over to science and the betterment of humankind? Of course you have! Well, now’s your chance to do just that and become a “YOGA” subject for The International Wellbeing Study, a large online international study investigating peoples’ wellbeing. Since its inception, the study has aimed at investigating the difference in wellbeing of yoga participants over the course of a year of dedicated yoga practice.
For the next intake in September 2010, as well as for future intakes, the study will target yoga participants in particular. The 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. To participate in the upcoming September assessment and/or find out more about the study, visit The International Wellbeing Study website.
Importantly, if you do decide to join the study, it’s important that you input “YOGA” when prompted to provide a “study code.”
As if you needed any more incentive than knowing that you are making the world a better place just by offering your sweet yoga skills to the universe of human discovery, you could win one of fifteen $100 Amazon.com vouchers (to spend on yoga books, of course…:)
