Yoga Research 101, a preconference workshop on the basics of yoga research offers a unique opportunity for research trainees, yoga instructors,
and therapists to learn the basics of Yoga research, establish connections for possible future research projects and meet professional researchers and colleagues.
Hosted by the Himalayan Institute (HI), and nestled in the Poconos mountains, the academic experience will be enriched by the environment, which is not only beautiful and inspiring, but home to a tradition and community invested in the practice and scientific inquiry of yoga.
Lodging at HI is modest, but quite economical, and includes tasty vegetarian meals and full access to campus amenities. Special arrangements have been made to encourage guests to come early or stay over in order to take full advantage of their visit.
