The Yoga Studies Program at Loyola Marymount University provides deep study of the Yoga tradition from multiple perspectives through a Master of Arts degree, offered both in residential and low-residency formats. The graduate program is designed to help students explore Yoga's rich history, its relationship to religion and spirituality, and 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. A Yoga Therapy Post-Graduate Certificate is now also being offered, beginning Fall 2019. The Yoga Studies program is designed to meet the needs of Yoga students and teachers who are seeking to enhance their knowledge in both theory and application.
