Established in 1974, the Institute for the Study of Religions is the oldest academic institution in Poland offering complete degree programmes in the study of religions, and the country's leading research unit on the religions of the world.
Spread across seven departments and one laboratory, the academic staff of the Institute conduct research in all sub-disciplines of religious studies (history, anthropology, phenomenology, psychology and sociology of religion).
The Institute cooperates with many universities and research facilities from EU countries, the USA and Eastern Europe. We organise international conferences, symposiums, plenary lectures and workshops for academics, students and people interested in the world's religions.
Modern Yoga Research is an informal community of scholars from all around the globe, working towards the advancement of academic research on yoga. The members of MYR - typically university academics engaged in teaching, and in the professional study of forms of modern yoga and/or of South Asian history, culture and languages - schowcase their research through a website , established to provide up-to-date information about current research into modern yoga and, more generally, about some of the most informative research on earlier forms of yoga.  But they are also sympathetic to the situation of committed practitioners who would like to find out more about the roots of their own practice and the wider context of yoga, whether contemporary or ancient.
