Minzu (Nationalities) University in Yunnan is now offering China's first master's degree in Yoga, with applications being accepted starting Tuesday, October 10, reports The China Youth Daily.

The program is being sponsored by the China-India Yoga College at the University and Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, a renowned Indian Yoga university.

The degree program was officially approved by China's Ministry of Educational in January, 2017.

A Yoga master's degree will take three years to complete, including two years studying in China, and the final year in India. Students will receive separate master's degrees from both China and India once they obtain the required credits.

Classes will include lessons on yoga asanas, yoga physiology, yoga anatomy, yoga therapy as well as meridian theory.

The program will also offer language courses for Chinese students studying in India, including Hindi and Sanscrit, as well as courses related to Indian culture.

  It's only a matter of time before the Chinese chivvy young students to  take up a course aimed to teach them how to play  computer games in school. Plus, it's conceivable that there will be other "crowd-pleasing" courses, such as teaching students how to woo girls, how to make dinner, and how to wash their gfs' clothes.

    Would there be a course designed to teach Chinese students how to write like Kazuo Ishiguro?

Yoga is special kind of physical training that should be started from your early age when the bones and joints are soft that is fit for exercises with ease! However one of my colleagues began her yoga so lately that she was already fifty years old! Half a year later, she had to quit the fitness dream since her backbone had been seriously hurt during one training program! Since then she saw doctors everywhere costing much money, NOW she has not fully recovered from the trouble!
As for me, I still can do side-somersault that ability I have achieved since I was young!
It is more safe and workable if you do physical exercises in a free-style. -----------Do kinds of actions like dance as you wish and permitted!

(The above is copy of my blog titled <Not all fitness training programs are fit for you!> that was originally written for comment on this thread
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!
