In this video Leslie Kazadi instructs a student wearing a biomechanics suit for study.

This yoga study was conducted to quantify the physical demands and functional adaptations of yoga poses on older adults in a 32-week study.  YESS used biomechanics, applying instruments in a laboratory to learn how muscles and joints were working during the performance of yoga poses.  We created a web site that has an overview of the study intention, detailed pictures and descriptions of the beginning and intermediate yoga sequences, modifications to poses we employed to accommodate study participants organized by joint, and an explanation and slide show of how biomechanics were measured.
