Profile of the Department :
The Centre for Yogic Science, Jiwaji University, Gwalior came into existence in 2001 on self financing scheme (SFS) to start various courses on Yoga education. Since then the centre is running post graduate diploma in yoga therapy (PGDYT). From the current session 2017-18, the centre is going to start MA course in Yoga (two years/four semester) and post graduate diploma in yoga (one year/two semester) under CBCS system.

Yoga being a system to link the man with the master has been practiced in India from 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 plying a vital role in physical health and stress management. Therefore, an innovative programme in this re-emerging area has been thought of for all the Universities/ Institutions and University Grant Commission in Master of Arts in Yoga to institutionalize and promote a proper healthy development of this ancient Indian wisdom as a tribute to our cultural heritage. This gives an opportunity to study the yogic activities in a scientific spirit.

Very recently, UGC in its notification dated 27th September 2016 has declared syllabus of Yoga as a new Subject for National Eligibility Test (NET). Hence, the MA course in Yoga will enable potential students to not only furtherance higher studies but also cater the need of the society in a better way.
