1. Rose, Caroline M. Perceived impact and experience of long-term yoga involvement for people with chronic pain.

Degree: MS(M.S.), Occupational Therapy, 2018, Colorado State University

Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate the perceived impact and experience of long-term involvement in a community-based group yoga class for people with chronic pain. Methods: Eleven participants, who previously completed an 8-week yoga intervention and continued attending yoga at a community pain clinic for 2 years, took part in the study. A mixed methods approach was employed. Two-year follow-ups of the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) were collected and compared to baseline COPM scores to measure change in perceived occupational performance and satisfaction. Individual qualitative interviews were conducted to explore participants' perceived impact and experience of long-term yoga involvement. COPM data were analyzed using Wilcoxon sign ranked non-parametric tests and qualitative interviews were analyzed using an inductive approach. Findings: COPM performance and satisfaction scores significantly improved between baseline and follow up after 2 years of yoga. Three main themes emerged from the qualitative interviews: 1) Occupational shift from "living" to "existing," 2) The change process is "progressive," and 3) Yoga is "a positive thing I do in my life." Conclusion: Long-term involvement in community-based group yoga may improve and sustain occupational health and well-being. Therefore, occupational therapists may consider yoga as a tool to promote occupational health in people with chronic pain. Advisors/Committee Members: Schmid, Arlene A. (advisor), Atler, Karen E. (committee member), Portz, Jennifer D. (committee member).

2. Willis, Leslie Ann. Yoga improves balance, balance confidence, and occupational performance for adults with diabetic peripheral neuropathy: a pilot study.

Degree: MS(M.S.), Occupational Therapy, 2015, Colorado State University

The purpose of this study was to examine the preliminary efficacy of yoga on balance, balance confidence, occupational performance, and satisfaction with performance in adults with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). We used a non-controlled pretest-posttest design. Fifteen adults with DPN attended 8-weeks of yoga, including positive affirmations, breathing, postures, and relaxation. Balance was measured using the Berg Balance Scale (BBS); balance confidence, using the Activities-specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC); and perceived occupational performance and satisfaction, using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM). Significant improvements were found for balance (p=.009), balance confidence (p=.004), occupational performance (p=<.001), and satisfaction with performance (p=<.001). Improvements remained significant after the Bonferroni correction (α= .05/4- .0125). The effect sizes were medium for balance (dCohen = 0.65) and large for occupational performance and satisfaction (dCohen = 1.13, 1.07, respectively). Yoga appears to significantly improve balance, balance confidence, occupational performance, and satisfaction for adults with DPN. Further research utilizing a control group, a larger sample size, and randomization is required. Advisors/Committee Members: Schmid, Arlene A. (advisor), Atler, Karen E. (committee member), Tracy, Brian L. (committee member).

3. Hinsey, Katie M. Group occupational therapy and yoga: the caregiver experience.

Degree: MS(M.S.), Occupational Therapy, 2016, Colorado State University

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the experiences of caregivers of people with stroke after participating in a group occupational therapy and yoga intervention (MY-OT). Participants elected to either participate in the 8 week MY-OT intervention or to not attend. Participants completed the Zarit Burden Interview and Positive Aspects of Caring scale retrospectively after the MY-OT intervention. Caregivers also chose to participate in focus groups and individual interviews following the intervention. Qualitative data were analysed using an iterative, coding process to generate larger themes based on caregiver experience. Caregivers who attended the MY-OT intervention saw a 47% decrease in caregiver burden and a 26% increase in positive aspects of caring. Those who did not attend saw a 2% decrease in caregiver burden and a 4% decrease in positive aspects of caring. Five themes were elicited from focus groups and interviews: 1) Changes in daily life; 2) Coping Mechanisms; 3) Learning through observation; 4) Sense of community and 5) Learning new information. Group occupational therapy, focused on self-management, and yoga are effective and beneficial interventions for the caregiver and care recipient together. Advisors/Committee Members: Schmid, Arlene A. (advisor), Atler, Karen E. (committee member), Fruhauf, Christine (committee member).
