The AYRC, Inc. (Ahimsa Yoga Research Center, Inc.) is seeking seniors who are 55 years & up, with type 2 Diabetes, to participate in Yoga & Exercise Study, in greater Hanover area.


Diabetes Study

The Effects and Affects of Yoga and Exercise on Seniors with
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

According to American Diabetes Association, 25.6 million, or 11.3% of all people in the age group of 20 years or older have diabetes.
Diabetes is a contributing factor to many diseases like heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, nervous system disease (neuropathy) leading to amputations of the feet or lower legs, erectile dysfunction, bladder infections and bladder control problems, autonomic nerve damage to the stomach and other parts of digestive systems, weight gain, and depression.
In addition, diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure requiring dialysis.
Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke, which remain the leading causes of death for both men and women in our country.
Diabetes itself is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. This is a misleading statistic, as quite often diabetes does not show up on death certificates as the primary cause of death.

Want To Do Something About it?
The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), a large prevention study of people at high risk for diabetes, showed that lifestyle interventions to lose weight and increase physical activity reduced the development of type 2 diabetes by 58% during the 3-year period of the study. The reduction in risk was even greater (71%) among adults ages 60 years and older.
Join the Research Study
If you are age fifty-five (55) or older and have had Type 2 Diabetes for more than one year, we invite you to participate in the Diabetes Study. This randomized and case controlled study is currently being conducted in the greater Hanover area to identify the effects of exercise and exercise combined with yoga on the physical and mental symptoms of diabetes.
There is no cost to join the study or to attend yoga classes.
You will be randomly assigned to either:

(1) Yoga and Exercise Treatment Group
(2) Exercise Treatment Group

Yoga Group:
If you are assigned to the Yoga Group, you will attend three yoga classes the first week and thereafter one group yoga class per week, for a total of 48 yoga classes over 52 weeks. This allows enough time off for vacations and/or sickness.
Exercise Group:
Participants assigned to either group will participate in an exercise program for a minimum of 30 minutes, three times a week, as recommended by the Hanover Hospital Fitness Center.
For both Groups: Medical data will be collected and you will be asked to fill out three questionnaires on five occasions.
Your commitment to the Diabetes Study will be for 52 weeks.
Potential benefits of the study include improved control of your diabetes and improved mood.

If you are fifty-five (55) years or older and have had Diabetes for a minimum of one year, you can receive additional information or sign up for this study. Please call the office of Dr. Kurt Thomas at 637-9219, extension 24, and leave your phone number. The study coordinator, will contact you shortly.


Have & write down your Resolve/Affirmation/Intention/Sankalpa for the year.
It may be relationship oriented, relationship to yourself or others, goal oriented or spiritual in nature…
Break it down in to monthly, and specifically weekly just for this first month. The question to ask yourself; are you ready to make it happen, or are you simply thinking and talking about it? If you are ready...
Have a plan of action...
Put the plan in to action…


On this New Year Day; think on:
The Sanskrit word "Sankalpa" which may be translated as meaning planting seeds for the GOOD TREE to grow!
The word Resolve; as re-solving an old issue.
The word Affirmation; as standing firm on an issue to get different results than what you got.
The word Intention; as what do you intend to get from your actions; let that be your guiding energy.
Have a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year!


The union of Body, Mind & Spirit already exists; the active dynamic process of Yoga allows one to feel and be it! It is about coming together of many different polarities in our inner workings of Body, Mind, Emotions, and wearing many different hats of relationships for interactions with the outer world. It is about expanding awareness for Self-Care through Raja Yoga, Philosophy and Practice.


Expanding Awareness for Self-Care through Raja Yoga, Philosophy & Practice


Ahimsa Yoga Research Center, Inc. - Yoga means to join, to come together or union. The word yoga is from Sanskrit language, based on 'Yuj'. It is an active, dynamic process of coming together, with the goal of feeling and being in union with self, others and the Divine.
