The Symposium on Yoga Research—Online for 2020!—is the West's Foremost Yoga Research Conference

Registration closes October 15.

This October 19 and 20, join us virtually for SYR! Our single-track academic research meeting showcases some of the best new yoga research and offers multiple short slide sessions as well as ample opportunities to interact with scientists and other experts in the field. The conference also provides a unique learning environment for yoga therapists, clinicians, integrative healthcare professionals, and psychology and education professionals interested in yoga research.

The online SYR program will consist of invited keynote and oral presentations, short narrated abstract presentations, special interest group discussions, and more. 

The conference sessions will be provided live during the scheduled timeframes. For those attendees who are not available during the live presentations, all sessions will be recorded and available to registered attendees for 7 days after the event.
