This study measured the feasibility of completing a randomized control trial on an 8-week seated yoga program for older adults with osteoarthritis. Part of the feasibility of this program was to determine whether participants would continue the yoga practice at home using a guide book after the 8-week program. Findings demonstrated that once participants were not in a group setting for the yoga, they did not continue with yoga practice. This outcome demonstrates the need for group programs for older adults to promote adherence to movement-based programs. (Trial registration: ClinicalTrials.Gov: NCT02113410).
