THE ONLY ACCREDITED INTERNATIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION
Currently complementary medicine attracts more and more attention in Europe and in the world, the popularity of health improvement and lifestyle principles of yoga based on philosophic and medical heritage of Himalayas increased. Latvia became the first state in the European Union where yoga specialists acquired the status of a profession – “Yoga Specialist”, which was achieved in the framework of TIBETAN HEALING CENTER SIA.
In May 2008, upon an initiative of TIBETAN HEALING CENTER, Latvian Classification of Occupations was supplemented by several new professions – Yoga Specialist, Yoga Master and Yoga Therapist.
In June 2010, the named specializations were included in the International Classification of Occupations.
In May 2017, the study programs of TIBETAN HEALING CENTER in the specializations of “Yoga Therapy” and “Yoga Specialist” acquired the third state accreditation for six years up to and including May 2023.
