Dear all,

for those of you interested in yoga, this might be the right moment for the announcement that modernyogaresearch.org<http://modernyogaresearch.org>, a website pioneered by, among others, Elizabeth de Michelis and Mark Singleton, is being prepared for a serious relaunch. A new team around Suzanne Newcombe and myself is emerging, mostly consisting of a group of scholars from the Yoga Darśana, Yoga Sādhanā<https://ydys2022.org/> international yoga conference in Kraków in May 2022. Also its domain is changing to simply yogaresearch.org<http://yogaresearch.org>, one reason for which being the fact that the study of pre-modern yoga, research by classical Indologists, is prominently featured on it, side-by-side and interacting with work by mostly social and religious scientists on modern yoga.

As part of this relaunch a user research study is just commencing, to which I would like to invite those of you who are interested. There is a short survey<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ZNlCwLRbsfQvLR_kx2c6bh5hQiOI4r49tYy8IZUVh-w/edit>. Completing it will take only a couple of minutes and your answers will be completely anonymous. You’ll be asked some questions and if you can take part in further research. Findings will be used to help develop the new website. Closing date is Wednesday 8 March 2023. For more information contact Sally SJ Brown<mailto:sallybrownsjb at gmail.com>.

Access the survey<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ZNlCwLRbsfQvLR_kx2c6bh5hQiOI4r49tYy8IZUVh-w/edit>

If you have any questions about the new website, would like to get involved or have your research featured on it you can contact me. Please feel free to forward this email to whoever else you think might be interested. Thank you for your help.

Best wishes

Peter Pasedach on behalf of the website team
