Yoga Medicine® Research Institute

The Yoga Medicine® Research Institute (YMRI) is a non-profit research organization focused on the application of yoga, meditation and mindfulness to improve health and the human condition.
The Yoga Medicine® Research Institute (YMRI) is a community of highly trained teachers who have a deep understanding of the body from an eastern and western perspective. Our teachers are specifically trained to provide individualized, therapeutically based yoga practices to their students as well as to understand the nuances of conducting participant research. For our research projects, YMRI utilizes our community of highly trained Yoga Medicine® teachers to deliver purpose-driven yoga, meditation and mindfulness instruction as a way to examine its effects on various health outcomes.
Purposeful and well-designed research initiatives have the capacity to change the landscape of how we view and utilize yoga as a therapeutic modality in our medical communities.
