Scientific Research on Yoga

View our growing library of conversations on the scientific research on yoga. These conversations dive deep into research that has been done on both wellness and disease, highlight the therapeutic efficacy of yoga when it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine, and provide the yoga community with new language, insights, and techniques on yoga as a practice. Hosted by wellness expert Kim Weeks (RYS 200, RYS 500, E-RYT 500, CEP), our Director of Yoga Research Dr. Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, and expert voices from the yoga community, these conversations reference and are inspired by research review papers and notable research publications at Yoga Alliance’s Scientific Research on Yoga site pages
