Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the results of Wii™ yoga versus a traditional structured exercise intervention regarding posture and self-esteem. The data were analyzed using a bivariate correlation and repeated measures 2-way ANOVA with the level of alpha set at p < .05. Four participants (4 females) from Wheeling Jesuit University took part in the study. Two females completed a traditional exercise intervention, consisting of strengthening and stretching exercises from a certified personal trainer for 6 weeks, 3 times a week. The other 2 female participants completed the Wii™ yoga for the same number of sessions. Self-esteem was measured by implementing the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale to the participants before the exercise intervention and after the exercise intervention. No significant difference was found using SPSS™ Version 19.0 in the study. However, the data indicate that if there had been a larger sample size, it would have increased the statistical power of the study showing that there could have been a statistically significant difference.
