We are looking for Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who are experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As part of a new study, you would participate in a breathing-based meditation program that may help with your symptoms of PTSD.

This study will investigate a form of breathing-based meditation called Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY). SKY may help to improve symptoms of PTSD. The SKY program will be taught, in English and French, by instructors through online group video calls over a six-week period. This research will help inform on the efficacy of SKY, a mind-body intervention delivered virtually as a treatment for PTSD among the Canadian Veteran population.
