For sample adults who had participated in yoga in the past 2 weeks (EXYOGA), EXYOGAMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent doing yoga each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in yoga, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you do yoga?" (EXYOGANO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend (doing) yoga each time?" EXYOGAMIN reports the answer to this last question.
