Successful AGEing (SAGE) yoga trial

You are invited to participate in a free research study promoting healthy ageing conducted by the University of Sydney.

The ‘Successful AGEing (SAGE) yoga trial’ aims to measure the effect of a group-based yoga exercise program compared to the effect of a home-based seated relaxation yoga program on falls and other important health outcomes.

If you decide to take part in this research, you will be randomly allocated to one of the yoga programs and you will be expected to take part for 12 months.

Participation is free. Yoga classes will be offered in various locations around Sydney and you need to be able to commit to attending two classes each week.

Ethics committee approval number: 2019/604

Eligibility

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are:

  • Are aged 60 years or older
  • living independently in the community
  • not currently participating in yoga
  • healthy enough to be physically active.
