Qualitative Survey with UCL
We are inviting the students that are enrolled on the next in school course starting 1st March to participate in a psychological study carried out by researchers at the Anna Freud Centre/University College London (UCL).
Students will be taking part in two interviews asking some questions about how they feel about yoga and what they think helped or prevented them from being able to engage with it. The first one will be before the student starts yoga and the second will be 6 weeks later. The conversation can last as long as the student wants it to (up to a maximum of an hour), but will usually last for 30-45 minutes. Pippa Jackson (UCL MSc student) will conduct the interviews in a room at the school.
For more information please visit the following and each participating student must have the consent form signed and returned back to the school before the Friday, 15th February 2019.
Quantitative Survey with Westminster
The University of Westminster is working with Teen Yoga to explore the impact of yoga classes on young people’s stress and wellbeing.
The Teen Yoga Foundation is a charity that provides training to enable individuals to teach yoga and mindfulness to teenagers (accredited by the Yoga Alliance UK and Independent Yoga Network) with the aim of supporting optimal mental and physical wellbeing in adolescence. For more information about Teen Yoga, please view their website (http://teenyogafoundation.com/) or contact the Research Manager, Dr. Nicholas Kearney.
Jo is inviting schools in which she is teaching to take part in research to understand any impact of practicing yoga through the competition of two short questionnaires; one at the start of the term and one at the end of the term. The survey will ask about the student's stress, wellbeing and sleeping habits and should not take more than 10 minutes to complete.
All of the data will be confidential and anonymous and the student will not be asked for their name.
If you DO NOT wish your child to participate in the yoga surveys, please complete and return the opt-out form below and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
