The Central Council for Research in Yoga & Naturopathy (CCRYN) is an autonomous body under Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. It is an apex body in the field of Yoga and Naturopathy, actively engaged in promotion, propagation, research, education, training and publication work.
A number of research projects with full financial assistance by the Council are being conducted at various reputed and premier medical institutions viz. All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, New Delhi, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences, Bangalore etc. So far, 30 research projects have been completed.
The findings of these research projects are applied in OPDs of Yoga and Naturopathy run by the Council in the leading Government Hospitals of Delhi. The Council provides grant-in-aid to various Yoga and Naturopathy institutions throughout India under TCPC & PCC schemes for furtherance of its aims & objectives.
Reorientation programmes for Yoga and Naturopathy practitioners to update their knowledge and motivate them for research and training workshops on research methodology are also organised by the Council.
Keeping in view the need for systematic Research and Development of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy in the country, the Govt. of India established the “Central Council for Research in Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy” as an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in 1969. Later, in March 1978, this composite Council was dissolved to pave way for the formation of four independent Research Councils, one each for Ayurveda and Siddha, Unani, Homoeopathy and Yoga & Naturopathy.
Hence, this Council was established in 1978 with a view to provide better opportunities for all-round development of Yoga and Naturopathy independently according to their own doctrines and fundamental principles.
