Yoga Therapy Program Description
The Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) is requesting an endorsement to add a new MS in Yoga Therapy. MUIH is the only institution in Maryland approved by MHEC to operate in the State of Maryland to provide graduate degrees and certificates in acupuncture, Western and Chinese herbal nutrition, integrative health, Chinese wellness therapies and ayurvedic and integrative medicine. Yoga Therapy is the process, application, teachings and practices of yoga. The proposed degree will provide the first accredited graduate curriculum in Yoga Therapy in the United States for yoga professionals who use their discipline to address health issues such as back and joint pain and cardiovascular health. The 39-credit hour program is aligned with the competency educational standards set forth by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
