Students can now sign up for the three-year programme, the first two years of which will be completed in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, and the final year in India, according to Lu Fang, deputy dean on IndiaChina Yoga College (ICYC).

Students who complete the programme will receive degree/ diplomas from both Yunnan Minzu University and Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana in Bengaluru, Lu was quoted as saying by state-run Xinhua news agency.
