Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Behavioral: - Gentle Yoga and Yogic Breathing
Gentle Yoga (GY) postures can be done while seated on a chair (sometimes called "Chair Yoga") and have been shown to benefit people with symptoms associated with cancer.12 However, Yoga is under-studied in the area of scleroderma. While most traditional Yoga postures can be practiced by anyone, people with scleroderma often have limited physical movement and can be prone to injury. Gentle Yoga postures are physically much easier to do than traditional Yoga and, thus, may be more accessible for SSc patients with musculoskeletal and other impairments. Gentle Yoga postures that are done while seated on a chair also combine easily with YB, but little is known about the specific benefits of the GY+YB combination (GYYB). Further study is needed to determine whether GYYB may be an effective strategy for improving QoL in SSc patients. The Yoga intervention to be used in this study specifically involves GY done while seated in combination with YB.
