IJOYS Volume 4 – Issue 2


I am delighted to bring the next volume of IJOYAS on the opening of a mega event. It is a privilege to release this issue on the inauguration of National Conference on Yoga & Life, jointly organized by Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya, Haridwar and Indian Association of Yoga, New Delhi.

Readers might be aware that IJOYAS completed its three years of publication successfully. During this period we tried to provide a really exciting opportunity to consider the truly interdisciplinary nature of Yoga and other allied studies going on all over.

The objective of this journal is to publish up-to-date, high-quality and original research papers alongside relevant and insightful reviews. It includes technical and professional aspects of Yoga and allied disciplines like Philosophy, Spirituality, Psychology, Human Consciousness, Medical, Paramedical sciences, Health sciences, Therapy, Education, Physical education, exercise and sports sciences, biomechanics, Literary/textual studies, Physiology, Biochemistry etc.

My sincere thanks to all the member of advisory and review committee, for their effort and contributors to this issue. Needless to say, any papers that you wish to submit, either individually or collaboratively, are much appreciated and will make a substantial contribution to the development and success of the journal.
