The institute, spanning nearly 15 acres with an investment of approximately ₹100 crores, aims to create a synergistic bridge between traditional Yoga and Naturopathy knowledge and modern technology.

The institute’s primary focus is to establish benchmark standards in education, preventive healthcare, and research in Yoga and Naturopathy. With a commitment to scientific validation of traditional systems, it is poised to function as an international collaboration center for global promotion and research in these fields. Additionally, the institute will serve as an incubation center for startups in the Yoga and wellness sector.

Addressing the gathering, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal highlighted the institute’s role in fostering the Ayush movement and its potential to empower Assam and the Northeast. The institute is expected to contribute to the Ayush sector’s growth, hospitality, patient care, and medical tourism, utilizing the rich flora and fauna of the region.

The CRIYN is designed to provide clinical training facilities, focusing on areas such as cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes rehabilitation, autoimmune diseases, and NCD risk reduction. Driven by research and development, the institute aims to create evidence-based protocols for managing Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) through an integrated medicine approach.

The hospital associated with the institute will offer inpatient services with Yoga and naturopathy protocols to enhance the quality of life. The facility will provide comprehensive services, including naturopathy diet and nutrition, yoga therapy, massage & manipulative therapies, acupressure, acupuncture, chromotherapy, magneto therapy, physiotherapy, and hydrotherapy treatments.

The event, attended by various dignitaries, marks a significant step towards reinforcing the medical infrastructure in Assam and promoting holistic wellness through traditional healing practices.
