The LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute is involved in on-going research. Currently, Amy Weintraub consults on a National Institute of Health-funded study of yoga and depression at Brown University and Butler Hospital, and other research projects at the University of Virginia, the University of North Texas and other institutions where elements of the LifeForce Yoga protocol for mood management are being utilized.
If you are a university-affiliated researcher or graduate student engaged in research on yoga and its impact on mental health, we would be glad to speak with you and share the resources we have developed for group class protocols and home practice free of charge. Please contact LifeForce Yoga Research Director Dr. Susan Tebb to discuss your study: firstname.lastname@example.org
