Abstract [en]

Abstract:

Iyengaryoga is a form of yoga. This form focuses on postural correction or alignment to increase the awareness of how the different body parts move together and how malposition of the joints can be associated with pain. The use of props to support different postures is systematically acquired. Earlier studies have shown that participating in Iyengaryoga can decrease musculoskeletal pain. No study has explored how the Iyengaryoga participants’ experience Iyengaryoga as a part of their rehabilitation.

Objective:

Explore experiences of Iyengaryoga, physiotherapy and pain in patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Method: Four Iyengaryoga participants within the region of Umeå were recruited by purposive sampling to be included in audio recorded semi-structured interviews that were later transcribed. The study took its form in the qualitative, inductive structure with the qualitative content analysis method.

Results & Conclusion:

An overall view of the study includes experiences of both Iyengaryoga, healthcare, and physiotherapy. The results showed that there were four key themes that could be distinguished. All participants had positive attitudes against Iyengaryoga in the sense that the participants experienced that their pain had decreased, they had improved their functional abilities, and could cope with many bodily complaints that previously restricted them in their everyday life. It was described in the interviews how the pain affected their lives, their experiences of that the health care confirms their diseases but not their identity, and that the Iyengaryoga classes was a place where they finally gained the experience of mastering both the pain and learned to cope with both bodily impairments and experienced bodily health.
