Move, Breathe, Connect: an online wellbeing program

Thank you for participating as a research participant in the present study to evaluate an online wellbeing program. The study aimed to develop, evaluate and investigate adherence to, a live interactive physical and emotional wellbeing program. We also wanted to see how adherence (how many classes per week you attended) influenced your wellbeing. We understand that it’s not always easy to attend all classes, and that you are likely to have other commitments; so please don’t worry if you didn’t manage to attend many classes. We also know that the exercises we asked you to do in the wellbeing program can be difficult- so please don’t worry if you found some tasks harder than others.

If you have any questions regarding the study, or would like to be emailed a copy of the results, please feel free to ask a member of the research team using the following email address: move.breathe.connect@newcastle.ac.uk. Please note that the results from the study will be for the whole group, rather than on an individual basis.

In the event that any psychological issues arise as a result of taking part in this study, we encourage you to seek advice from your GP. It may also be useful to consider self-referral to talking therapy counselling in your area (if it is available) via the following link:

Thank you again for your time and participation!

All the best,

The Research Team
