The National Institute of Engineering (NIE) has signed a MoU with Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana to collaborate in teaching, training and conduct research in yoga.

The MoU was signed on Wednesday as per which both NIE and S-VYASA will jointly conduct seminars, conferences and workshops on yoga for students and faculty members. The MoU was signed by G.L. Shekar, principal and CEO of NIE, and H.R. Nagendra, Chancellor of S-VYASA University.

A release said S-VYASA, known for its research, quality education and yoga-based clinical service, extends the resources and will have academic interaction.

Mr. Nagendra said there are many school of thoughts by different yoga experts. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has advised these experts, including S-VYASA, to develop common protocol covering both traditional shastras and modern science and there is a consensus among these experts and organisations in framing common syllabus that fits into primary, middle and high school sectors.

The yoga curriculum for higher education will be announced soon by Ministry of Human Resource Development, said Mr. Nagendra.
