外文标题：China gets its first yoga college after PM's visit
BEIJING: The first yoga college in China has been established at the Yunnan University of Nationalities in Kunming. This follows an agreement between the Indian and Chinese governments, which was signed in Beijing during the recent visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The two countries are also jointly organizing a massive 5-day yoga training camp in Chengdu city, where nearly 1,000 Chinese students will be trained by visiting Indian gurus. The camp which will take place between June 17 and 21 will be attended by 20 yoga teachers from India.
"The university has confidence to build the college into an influential brand with its own characteristics, a platform for cultural exchange and a bridge for Sino-Indian friendship," Peng Jinhui, president of the university, said at the inaugural ceremony on Saturday.
The establishment of a college is expected to help standardize the teaching and practice of yoga in China. Students would be able to obtain a proper graduation certificate before some of them opt for advance training to become teachers themselves. At present, many of the yoga teachers in China have had limited training, sources said.

It is simply amazing, and praiseworthy to start YOGA session in the country that only believed about marshal art to be the best form of every thing. This may hurt the sentiments of some' who feel YOGA as a religious exercise !!
We should establish a tai che college. Like yoga, the practice of Tai che also enhances your health.
... yoga is not against any religion, its just a way of life. Even the UN has recognized that.
