We investigate whether medical yoga sent remotely can improve people’s health.

Heart disease patients and former intensive care patients are included in the study. The study aims to evaluate the impact of medical yoga remotely at home with regard to physical function, quality of life, symptoms of anxiety and depression, sleep, and cognition in people with long-term conditions.

Study design

Single-blind parallel two-arm randomized controlled study with 1:1 distribution to intervention and control group. Persons with long-term conditions have been recruited from four hospitals and randomized to an intervention of medical yoga at home (tele-yoga) using a live videoconference link and a yoga-app on the participants tablet for 12 weeks or a control group receiving individual advice of physical activity. Data have been collected at baseline, after 3 and 6 months.

Study recruitment finalized in May 2023 and findings will be reported throughout 2023 and 2024.

The Tele-yoga study is complete, and the team will present information and results.
