Tools in stress management by yoga : A qualitative study of yoga participants´ perceptions about dealing with stress in everyday life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie har genomförts på två stresshanteringsyogakurser i Västra Sverige. Undersökningen bestod av åtta deltagare från en fortsättningsgrupp och tre deltagare från en nybörjargrupp. Syftet var att följa upp hur deltagarna uppfattar att kursen har gett dem verktyg att hantera stressen i vardagen. Forskningen har inspirerats av en fenomenografisk ansats där vi har använt oss utav semistrukturerade intervjuer. Deltagarna i studien bestod sammanlagt av två män och nio kvinnor i åldrarna 29-71. Vi har analyserat materialet med hjälp av en fenomenografisk analysmodell. Resultatet är uppdelad i två delar; den första delen belyser de verktyg som deltagarna uppfattar som mest användbara för att reducera stress. De viktigaste har visat sig vara två andningsövningar och två yogaställningar. Även andra övningar har visat sig vara betydelsefulla.

Den andra resultatdelen handlar om hur och på vilket sätt yogakursen och verktygen har påverkat deltagarna. Denna del presenterats i fem kategorier: Fysiskt välmående, Självprioritering och självuppskattning, Livslust och glädje, Medveten närvaro, och Upplösning av rädslor

Abstract [en]

This qualitative study has been performed during two courses in how to handle stress by using yoga that were performed in the Western part of Sweden. The study group consisted of 11 participants of which three were from a group of yoga beginners. The purpose was to follow up on whether the participants perceive that the course had given them tools to cope with stress in everyday life. The research was inspired by a phenomenographic approach and based on semi-structured interviews. The participants consisted of two men and nine females aged between 29 and 71 years. We have analysed the material by using a phenomenographic model. The result is divided into two parts; the first one illustrates the tools that the participants perceive to be most useful for reducing stress. The most important tools has proven to be two breathing exercises and two yoga positions. Other exercises have also proved to be important.

The second part of the result deals with how and in what way the yoga course and its tools have affected the participants. This part is presented in five categories: Physical well-being, Self-precedence and self-esteem, Happiness and joy, Conscious presence (Mindfulness), and Resolution of fears
