APU > Yoga and Naturopathy

Welcome to the Best Yoga & Naturopathy University

Yoga has assumed significance worldwide and the Government of India is currently promoting indigenous systems of health including Yoga in a strong manner through the Ministry of AYUSH.

Yoga has been a part of SBV since its inception and since 2010 the Centre for Yoga Therapy, Education and Research (CYTER) of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth (SBV) has been promoting health in a holistic manner with a scientific research based approach through the Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute (MGMCRI). All students of the constituent colleges of SBV are exposed to the Yoga training and numerous courses are offered in the field of Yoga Therapy from certificate to PhD level.

The innovative focus of CYTER is on “Salutogenesis”,  the concept of health promotion and disease prevention and management, that enables us to work towards holistic health and wellbeing for all.  This integrative approach bridges traditional and modern approaches to healthcare in the form of Traditional, Complementary and Integrative Medicine (TCI) enables us to serve the patient population in a more efficient, cost effective and patient friendly manner. This is in line with the WHO Traditional Medicine Strategy 2014–2023 developed and launched in response to the World Health Assembly resolution on traditional medicine (WHA62.13). This strategy aims to support Member States in developing proactive policies and implementing action plans that will strengthen the role traditional medicine plays in keeping populations healthy.

With international interest in its activities, CYTER strives to serve as a nodal center to train medical educators and administrators for setting up such integrative health centers as it has necessary infrastructure and human resources. This is only possible due to the supportive and innovative milieu of Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth where the holistic art and science of Yoga, our cultural heritage, has been able to reach both the classes and the masses of our society optimally, effectively and holistically.

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel”  

With Gurukul based education, you study traditional subjects while also experiencing inner growth and developing your creativity. Your awareness expands, improving your ability to absorb knowledge and see the big picture. 

You discover the underlying reality in yourself and connect the knowledge in a meaningful way to your own life. Through this approach, you naturally become more capable of creating positive change in yourself and the world. 

You’ll learn the Meditation technique which enhances your personal inner growth and helps build a strong basis for success and fulfillment in all areas of life. Meditation is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle.

You’ll study yoga asanas in theory and through your own experience, experiencing the deep relaxation, stress release, and expansion associated with daily yoga practice.

You’ll learn what to eat, when to eat, and how to eat to maintain or restore balance to the state of health. These methods enliven the inner intelligence of the body and strengthen its natural healing ability.
