Abstract [en]

Objectives

We investigated the perceptions and experiences of a therapeutic yoga form, MediYoga, which is evolved from Kundaliniyoga among patients with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF).

Design and setting

an inductive exploratory design was chosen with individual semi-structured interviews. The study was conducted with 12 participants (7 men and 5 women, average age 63.5) at a university hospital, Sweden. Informed consent was obtained from all participants. The data were analyzed using a qualitative content analysis with an inductive method and a manifest approach.

Results

Three categories were found in the analysis. In the category “A time for a sense of existence and presence”, the patients described an increased thoughtfulness and experiences of gaining access to an inner self. The category “A way of gaining well-being and increased consciousness” describes patients` feelings of relaxation and feeling of comfort, with components of mental and physical well-being. Furthermore, “Access to a tool to gain willpower and relieve symptoms” describes the perceptions from patients to obtained access to a tool for handling the emotions, such as fear and anxiety, as well as symptoms that they could struggling with between, and during, their episodes of atrial fibrillation. No adverse events were reported by the yoga group, during the study.

Conclusions

Patients with PAF described MediYoga as an accessible tool to manage emotions and symptoms related to episodes of AF. MediYoga may also assist in enhancing body awareness, whereby physical, mental and spiritual components are integrated. MediYoga may strengthen self-management among patients with PAF.
