California Institute for Human Science and Soul of Yoga are delighted to announce our new institutional partnership through our new Comparative Religion and Philosophy (CRP) Program Master’s with Yoga Studies Specialization--Teacher Training Practicum.
Within this program, graduate students will be able to gain rich experiential insight into the discipline of yoga so that they can fully integrate the philosophical insight of their didactic studies with the grounded experiential wisdom of embodied praxis, in a way that fully supports the students' professional and personal enrichment.
California Institute for Human Science’s CRP Master's with Yoga Studies specialization provides an opportunity for yoga teachers' to strengthen their philosophical foundations, integrate cutting-edge research into integrative health, and gain professional standing within the community of scholars. The yoga specialization provides students with a way to actualize an awareness of human existence as a multi-dimensional phenomenon including body, mind, and spirit aspects; and to achieve mastery of yoga asana as a mindfulness practice.
Program Learning Objectives:
