We can proudly state that it is only in the supportive and innovative milieu of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth that the holistic art and science of Yoga, our cultural heritage, has been able to reach both the classes and the masses of our society optimally, effectively and holistically.

“There are many centers where you can get a Yoga degree, attend a Yoga therapy session or find Yoga research being undertaken. However, to have all three happening in one place is surely innovative. This center is indeed a role-model that combines the best of the East with that of the West.”

Joseph le Page, founder- Integrative Yoga Therapy, USA

At CYTER we have an integrated set up where we are educating future Yoga therapists, simultaneously helping patients recover from illnesses and at the same time developing an understanding through scientific research.

Whereas Yoga is usually found in departments of Physical Education & Sports in most universities, we at CYTER have it in a medical institution thus enhancing the learning curve of our trainees as also enabling us to offer holistic therapeutic benefits for all patients in our hospital.
