Envisioned by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji, Sri Sri University was established in 2009 as a centre for world-class education in India. The university off¬ers a range of pivotal, unique and cutting edge undergraduate, and postgraduate degree programmes, short-term, diploma and certificate courses, and Doctoral studies (Ph.D.), that seeks to preserve the ancient wisdom of the East and offer the best of Western innovation.

Vision To impart holistic and value-integrated education in order to develop visionary thinkers with social consciousness to lead and precipitate inevitable changes, with a summative call for Learn – Learn–Serve.

Mission To create centers of excellence in knowledge and research across the fields of study in order to equip students to achieve the highest levels of professional ability in a learning atmosphere that fosters human values to serve the needs of local, national, and global economies.


The Faculty of Health and Wellness at Sri Sri University was established in 2012 with a vision for a future in which holistic health and wellness become widely accessible to society. Our fundamental mission is to advance comprehensive health and well-being through education and cutting-edge research. Our educational approach blends academic rigor with experiential learning deeply rooted in the ancient principles of Yoga. This distinctive fusion not only imparts domain knowledge but also cultivates essential soft skills and life skills within our students. Our aim is to equip them as lifelong learners, capable leaders, and devoted contributors to their communities.

One hallmark of our faculty is our unwavering commitment to a holistic approach to healthcare. We embrace the advancements of modern medical technologies while concurrently advocating for elective alternatives like Osteopathy, Nursing, and Sports Science. These holistic modalities promote the activation of individuals, inherent self-healing mechanisms, nurturing a state of enduring health and well-being. Notably, our faculty is a pioneering institution in Asia, introducing structured graduate courses in osteopathy.

In summary, our vision is to shape a world in which holistic health is not an exception but the prevailing norm. Through the conduit of education and groundbreaking research, we seek to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to lead healthier, more enriching lives.

By bridging the chasm between ancient wisdom and contemporary medicine, we champion a culture of well-being that transcends our campus, radiating positive effects throughout society.

(IAPES), one of the grandeur agencies of choice for people and organizations delivering or supporting the delivery of physical education, sport, and physical activity in educational contexts and in the wider community. The purpose of IAPES lies in promoting and maintaining high standards and safe practice in physical education and sports.


A comprehensive approach towards enhancing human performance, individuality, and safety in sports.

Objective of the conference:

1. To provide a platform to facilitate the scientists, researchers, academicians, industrialists, and students to exchange their knowledge, ideas and innovations.

2. To highlight recent advancements and challenges in the Physical Education and Sports Sciences approaches leading to uplift performance and safety in sports.

3. To enable the delegates to establish research or business relations as well as to find international linkage for future collaborations.


The prime goal of this international conference is to provide a common platform for students, research scholars, academicians, athletes and industry professionals to share and discuss the recent advances in the field of sports and health science. This conference will be a road map to initiate partnerships across different disciplines, institutions and countries in order to spearhead cutting edge research in sports sciences aimed at significant breakthroughs in the field of sports. The conference will provide ample opportunities for the young researchers to share their experiences as well as knowledge not only with their fellow researchers but also with renowned sports scientists. By having interactions, as well as sharing the research work carried out in these areas, the new proposals can be designed with focused themes which shall lead to further development in the sports field and thereby improve the existing knowledge. The highlights of the conference would be the plenary lectures by the experts, oral presentations by seasoned scientists, oral presentations by budding scientists, poster sessions, and award sessions.
