Abstract [en]

Introduction The purpose of this study was to investigate to which extent people exercise MediYoga after completed course, if any symptoms change had occurred, and investigate the level of self-rated stress. 

Method A quantitative method was used and the data was collected through an online survey. The sample included people who had completed a course in MediYoga within primary healthcare some time during 2015. The survey contained a validate questionnaire (SEQ-LT) to investigate self-rated stress during leisure time the past week, as well as a number of questions specific for this study. The survey was distributed to 123 people and 56 responded.

Result The majority of people participating (n=30, 65 %) had not exercised MediYoga for the past week, most (n=31, 67 %) indicated that their symptoms had improved, and most (n=29, 63 %) rated stress as medium. Statistically, the results revealed that there was no significant difference in perceived symptoms change among those who had/had not exercised MediYoga for the past week (p=0,24). Furthermore, there was no statistic significant difference in levels of self-rated stress among those who had/had not exercised MediYoga for the past week (p=0,66).

Conclusion The complexity of this study topic means that the result can be explained in several ways and can be due to different factors. 

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka i vilken mån personer utövar MediYoga efter avslutad kurs, om någon symptomförändring hade skett en tid efter kursen, samt undersöka självskattad stress.

Studien var empirisk med en kvantitativ ansats. Urvalet inkluderade personer som hade genomfört kurs i MediYoga inom primärvården någon gång under år 2015. En webbenkät mejlades ut till 123 personer och det var 56 personer som besvarade enkäten, varav ett internt bortfall på 10 personer. Enkäten bestod av ett antal frågor som var specifikt utformade för denna studie, samt ett validerat frågeformulär (SEQ-LT) för att undersöka självskattad stress på fritiden den senaste veckan.

Resultatet visade att en majoritet (n=30, 65 %) inte hade utövat MediYoga den senaste veckan, de flesta (n=31, 67 %) angav att symptomet hade förbättrats, och flest antal personer (n=29, 63 %) självskattade sin stress som mellan. Resultatet visade att det inte fanns någon statistisk signifikant skillnad i upplevd symptomförändring bland de som hade/inte hade utövat MediYoga den senaste veckan (p=0,24). Det fanns inte heller någon statistisk signifikant skillnad i självskattad stress på fritiden bland de som hade/inte hade utövat MediYoga den senaste veckan (p=0,66).

Resultatet indikerade att det inte förelåg någon skillnad i upplevd symptomförändring och självskattad stress bland de som hade utövat MediYoga, samt de som inte hade utövat MediYoga. Det är ett komplext ämne vilket innebär att detta resultat kan förklaras på ett flertal sätt och bero på många olika faktorer.
