Informed: end April 2023
The University of Central Lancashire invites you to submit your research abstracts and abstracts about practice in the form of a one-page abstract (300 words) for submission to the 1st International Yoga & mind-body practice conference at UCLan. The deadline for abstracts is the last day in February 2023.
Research and abstracts about practice-based submissions are welcome with content connecting any form of yoga to health, wellbeing, wellness and social prescribing. Literature reviews, case studies, MSc and PhD research and practice abstracts are welcome. Authors from a practice background with no research experience are welcome to submit using the practitioners' guidelines below. We encourage all authors to consider submitting.
Abstracts are for poster presentations or 5 mins verbal presentations only.
Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by the conference committee using Oxford Abstracts. All accepted abstracts will be contained within our Book of abstracts available after the conference.
Referencing is not required in the abstract, but is required on the completed output submitted e.g. poster or presentation (APA 7th).

Abstracts are also encouraged from practitioners. Authors who collaborate (e.g. a community/ voluntary/ faith/ social enterprise/ private organization with health/ social care/ private practice/ academia/ research authors and yoga practitioners) will be particularly welcome if including social prescribing.
Abstracts about practice suggested outline:
Abstracts will be for either:
- Poster presentation (presenters are requested to submit digital poster (e.g., PDF format, Powerpoint, Canva etc.). This can include a 5 mins prerecorded presentation (embedded in the poster e.g. QR code). Presenters also have the choice of creating a physical poster to be displayed in Foster shared space on the day.
- Verbal presentation (5 mins, Powerpoint, Live on the day)
Authors will be available on the conference day for delegates to contact and answer questions. Authors will need to consent to their presentations being shared on the conference platform (and if any delegates retweet on Twitter/ share wider).
Authors are required to register for the conference by the end of March 2023 following accepting to present. If an author does not book their conference ticket their abstract will be removed from the book of abstracts/ conference information.
