  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The goals of this study were modest. A small pilot pre-post randomized trial was completed with a Yoga therapy intervention and a Wait list intervention. Additional studies in larger samples are needed.
