Vivekananda Yoga University in Los Angeles to start post-graduate yoga course – Connected to India

The Vivekananda Yoga University (VAYU) set up its initial campus in Los Angeles with a budget of USD 5 million as the world's first yoga university outside India.
Now the university has announced the launch of its post-graduate course in the US, along with research into the ancient Indian practice, with admissions beginning in April.
Sree Sreenath, a Professor from Case Western University, has been named its president and Indian yoga guru HR Nagendra as its chairman, the university said in a statement.
The Master's programmes will roll out from August 2020 under the leadership of Sree Sreenath.
The announcement by the university came within three months of receiving official recognition from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, California in November 2019.
VAYU will facilitate collaborative research, credit transfers and joint programmes with multiple premier universities across the world in the field of yoga.
The university was created to help thousands of yoga teachers in the US whose yoga education was limited to 200 or 500 hours of certificate programmes, said Prem Bhandari, a member of the Vayu board of directors.
