Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate Lakulish Yoga University, claimed to be the first ever such private sector self-financed institution in the country, on May 23, at Ahmedabad, which has been set up by the Surendranagar-based Life Mission Trust.

"Ours will be the first ever YogaUniversity in the country which will award full fledged degrees after three years' course," newly appointed vice chancellor of the university Bansidhar Upadhyay told PTI.

Admissions for six semester, three years' degree course will begin on the same day of inauguration and academic session is likely to start from June 15, he said. During the three years, degree course students will be taught subjects of Ashtang Yoga, karma, knowledge, Bhakti Yoga, philosophy, psychology, anatomy, ayurveda and naturopathy.

"We have appointed one professor and four lecturers for theory and two instructors for practicals," he said.
