Online yoga survey on well-being among workers

I am a postgraduate student at the Institute of Work, Health and Organisations at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom completing an MSc in Occupational Psychology. My research project focuses on workers’ well-being and their exercise habits.

As part of my research study I have prepared an online questionnaire to distribute to those who practice any physical exercise including yoga in your organisation/yoga studio.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather information that will allow me to investigate how the practice of yoga (specifically Bikram Hatha yoga and other kinds of Hatha yoga) and physical exercise are related to workers’ well-being.

I would be really grateful if you would complete the online survey using the following web link and forward this e-mail to the members of your studio to complete the survey as well. The questionnaire should not take more than ten minutes to complete. The weblink is:

By clicking on this link, your e-mail details will not be saved for this research or passed on to any third party. Should you have any problem to access the link, please copy it and paste it in the Internet browser and press enter.

This web link will direct you to the online survey so you can complete it. To encourage participation, all participants who fill in a questionnaire will have the option of entering a prize draw for a £100 prize.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this. I would be very grateful if you would take the time to fill out this questionnaire and forward this e-mail to the members of your studio and be part of this research. Should you want to see the results of this study when it is completed, I will be happy to send them to you.

Yours sincerely,

There is a great book called The Language of Yoga: Complete A to Y Guide to Asana Names, Sanskrit Terms and Chants. Hope that helps!


Is there a book that translates yoga postures/asanas from the Sanskrit as the language meant it to be?
My yoga teacher often will translate asanas in pieces from teh Sanskrit; ex. Tree as that which drinks water from the fee. ...or...Sep Leg head to knee as: knee doing the headstand
