IJOYS Volume 8 – Issue 2


I am delighted to bring the current volume of IJOYAS on the Holy occasion of Deepawali. It is a privilege to release this issue on the day when the whole nation is celebrating the lighting festival. It is the victory of light on darkness, the victory of goodness on badness. Let the festival bring a harmony in the entire world where the humanity is struggling with terrorism and hatred. Let the goodness get victory once again.

Readers might be aware that IJOYAS completed its six years of publication successfully. During this period we tried to provide a really exciting opportunity to consider the truly
interdisciplinary nature of Yoga and 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.
