Research on yoga from medical, psychological, kinesiological, and leisure perspectives are covered in this guide.

center of research versus schools

It is important to note the difference between a research institute and a school. The reason this is important is because we must understand why a website/organization exists so that we can evaluate their trustworthiness. For example, the University of Maryland is listed on this page, because they have a research center. However, this center (nor the university) does not offer programs/certificates on the teaching or instruction of yoga, or to become a yoga practitioner.
