SYR 2020

October 19 - 21, 2020

The Symposium on Yoga Research (SYR) is the West's foremost yoga research conference.

SYR is a single-track academic research meeting that showcases some of the best new yoga research and offers multiple poster 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.

With the announcement by Kripalu that they will be closed until 2021, we are in the process of creating an online experience to provide an exceptional opportunity for attendees 

The call for research abstracts is now open.
