Yoga Studies

The Master of Arts in Yoga Studies at Loyola Marymount University provides deep study of the Yoga tradition from multiple perspectives. The graduate program is designed to help students explore Yoga's rich history, its relationship to religion and spirituality, and immerse themselves in Yogic philosophy. Students study primary classical texts, learn the Sanskrit language, explore the health benefits of physical practice, and look at the placement of modern Yoga in today's world.

The program meets the needs of Yoga students and teachers who are seeking to enhance their knowledge in both theory and application.

    Referred to as the father of modern Yoga and credited with the revival of Hatha Yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888–1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, Ayurvedic healer and scholar, and is widely regarded as one of the most influential teachers of the 20th Century. Some of his students include many of today’s most renowned Yoga teachers: B.K.S. Iyengar, T.K.V.
