Dear Sir,

We are thankful to reader Dr. Allison David B, for responding to our article[1] entitled “Sleep Quality and Body Composition Variations in Obese Male Adults after 14 Weeks of Yoga Intervention: A Randomized Controlled Trial.”

Considering the points raised by the reader and reviewer, strong claim about the treatment effect would not be possible as between-group analyses do not show statistical significance. Hence, we would like to revise the conclusion in “Abstract” and “Conclusion” sections as below:

“The trend of changes observed across the groups in various variables may indicate possible beneficial effects of IAYT on body composition and sleep quality in obese males; however, between-group differences were found to be nonsignificant.”

Financial support and sponsorship
