“Inner Engineering Yoga Program on Short and Long Term Health Effects (ISHA-Impact): A Longitudinal Study”
This study intends to include any participant who has registered and plans to attend the Inner Engineering In-Person Completion Course. This course was offered at two time periods (March and April 2019) in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, respectively. The investigators are currently recruiting for the upcoming conferences in Toronto & Dallas (November 2019). Investigators anticipate that this study can include up to 5,000 study participants. Participants would attend this course and complete the pre-modules regardless of whether or not they participate in this study.
