How does two years studying yoga philosophy, Sanskrit and maybe a visit to ashrams in India sound? Well, it’s all part of what you’ll do in Loyola Marymount University’s new masters degree in yoga studies program

LMU in Los Angeles is now being credited as the first university to offer a masters in yoga program. The two-year program, which costs about $36,000, gives students the opportunity to study yoga history, anatomy, philosophy and physiology as well as learn to read Sanskrit. 

The LMU Yoga Studies homepage says: “The graduate program is designed to help students explore the Yoga tradition through various critical methodologies. The program meets the needs of Yoga students and teachers who are seeking to enhance their knowledge of the Yoga tradition in both theory and practice… Students learn various forms of Yoga practice, both ancient and modern, its place within world spirituality, and the techniques utilized for the teaching of Yoga.”
