Studying the effectiveness and implementation of Sudarshan Kriya Yoga for Canadian veterans with PTSD

common.study.values.description

Exploring whether virtually-delivered Sudarshan Kriya Yoga can help Canadian veterans with PTSD and how well this program works in practice.

The goal of this study is to explore if a meditation intervention can help Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. Past research has shown that meditation-based treatments, such as Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY), improves symptoms for veterans. We will build on previous research by studying the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of the virtual SKY intervention amongst Canadian veterans using a randomized controlled trial.
