KUNMING – India-China Yoga College (ICYC), China’s first dedicated yoga college, opened enrollment for its new master’s program on Tuesday.
Students can now sign up for the three-year program, the first two years of which will be completed in Kunming, capital of Southwest China’s Yunnan province, and the final year in India, according to Lu Fang, deputy dean on ICYC.
Students who complete the program will receive degree diplomas from both Yunnan Minzu University and India’s Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, Lu said.
Postgraduate courses will include asana (poses), pranayama (breathing), yoga therapy and physiology as well as Hindi and Sanskrit to eliminate language barriers.
