CALL FOR PAPERS

The Yoga Sangha announces a Call for Papers 2018/2019 as part of its Yoga Project activity.

ACADEMIC RESEARCH PAPER

If you are a scholar, an independent researcher, or a student of such fields as Philosophy, History, Anthropology, Psychology, Medicine, Physiotherapy or other, you are welcome to submit your original research paper, a case study or an academic article, either empirical, theoretical or practical. All research papers will be evaluated by our international team. Three chosen papers will be published on the Yoga Sangha website as well as on our Google Scholar profile. One of the papers will receive a monetary reward of 1110 USD.

There has been an increased body of research in the therapeutic benefits of yoga. Many of the studies, however, represented together various yogic traditions which differ quite significantly in their underpinnings. In this first edition of the Yoga Project, we therefore seek to to bring specific focus to and examine the anatomical aspects and therapeutic benefits of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and its influence on physical, psychological and emotional health from the perspective of various branches of science.

Both of the following areas of interest should be addressed in the research paper:


1. The purpose and design of Ashtanga Primary Series is for disease therapy (cikitsā).
2. The purpose and design of Ashtanga Intermediate Series is for energy channel cleansing (nadi shodhana).
