We have uploaded the entire book ‘Yoga Modules for Institutions of Higher Learning’.

Excerpts from Preface by Shri Subodh Tiwari ‘There have been independent efforts to inculcate Yoga in the institutions of higher learning. However, a systematized and combined effort was missing. A need was felt to have a standard module of Yoga which can be followed in the institutes of higher learning (+12th grade). Absence of a standard Yoga module combined with the fact that there are multiple methodologies or schools of thoughts adds to the confusion.

Considering this view, Kaivalyadhama initiated a process to standardize the Yoga module. It was imperative to get all the Yoga institutes in Maharashtra together and form a consensus on this. Various prominent institutes in Maharashtra were invited and meetings held. After taking into consideration the views and suggestions expressed the draft was finalized. The final module was presented to the Governor of Maharashtra on 4/12/2007.

It is with immense pride with which we say that it is for the first time in India that such a combined effort has been initiated and successfully completed, at the State level’.
