About the Organizer

The Centre for Yogic Science, Jiwaji University, Gwalior came into existence in 2001 under self-financing scheme (SFS) to start various courses on Yoga education. Since then the center is running postgraduate diploma in yoga therapy (PGDYT). In the session 2017-18, the center has started an M.A.course in Yoga (two years/four semesters) and Post Graduate Diploma in Yoga (one year/two semesters) under CBCS system.

Yoga being a system to link the man with the master has been practiced in India for thousands of years to overcome physical, mental and emotional distress. Even then it has not been recognized as a regular system of education in the Universities/ Institutions.

In the changed scenario of the world in health management and the new initiatives taken by Prime Minister, Govt. of India for declaring International Yoga Day on 21st June, yoga has been observed playing a vital role in physical health and stress management.

Therefore, an innovative programme in this re-emerging area as Master of Arts in Yoga has been started to promote a proper healthy development of this ancient Indian wisdom as a tribute to our cultural heritage. This gives an opportunity to study the various dimension of yoga in a scientific spirit which will generate and channelize potential manpower for teaching, R & D, and entrepreneurship.
