The BWY Gentle Years Yoga© Research Project

In 2016, the British Wheel of Yoga funded a Gentle Years Yoga© (GYY) pilot project in Harrogate District, conducted with 52 ‘inactive’ adults over the age of 60.  Participants were measured for health, well-being and physical fitness before and after a 3-month programme of GYY classes. 

Lead researcher, Laura Bissell described the project and provided  a summary of its outcomes in the Summer 2016 issue of Spectrum.
