dc.description.abstract In spite of the known benefits of physical activity participation, many adults still do not engage in physical activities. It is important to understand mechanisms that may facilitate the negotiation of physical activity constraints. Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health as the conceptual framework, this study analyzed secondary data from two yoga trials to explore potential mechanisms related to physical activity constraint negotiation. The results of data analysis support the idea that negotiation occurred both in mental body functions and in the environment. The Broaden and Build Theory of Positive Emotions provides further explanation for the negotiation of mental functions and environment. Yoga, an activity known to enhance positive emotions, may reduce constraints through broadening the individual’s experience and opening the individual’s mind to new opportunities and activities. en
