The Yoga Studies program admits a new class each fall. A Bachelor’s degree is required to apply, with an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 required.

There is no GRE requirement. We look for both a strong academic background and dedication to the tradition of Yoga. 

Application Steps:

1) Application:
Begin your application by clicking here.
2) Transcript(s):
Official transcript(s) must be sent directly from the undergraduate institution to the Graduate Admissions office.
3) Letter of Intent:
The letter of intent should address the applicant's academic background, interest in Yoga Studies, and her or his background in the field of Yoga. The letter should also indicate what the applicant hopes to learn and achieve in the Master of Arts in Yoga Studies program. Letters of intent average three to five pages.
4) Two Letters of Recommendation:
We recommend that applicants submit a letter from 1) a teacher or professor; and 2) a personal or work reference. The letter should indicate for how long and in what capacity the recommender has known the applicant.
5) A Short Video Introduction:

So the admissions committee can get to know you, please create a short (five minute) video of introduction. This video is a companion piece to the Letter of Intent, a chance for us to know your personal history in the field of Yoga, your current intentions and goals for the future. Please upload the video on private setting. For more information on this, feel free to contact the Program Administrator, Sarah Herrington: sarah.herrington@lmu.edu.
