In this week’s CareerWise, let’s explore how to build a career in yoga and naturopathy.
Yoga is based on Hindu philosophical traditions that date back to ancient India and focuses on our mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Naturopathy is an ancient science based on a concept of healing based on natural principles. The health-promoting, disease-preventing, therapeutic, and rehabilitative effects of many naturopathic approaches are evidenced in ancient Indian literature. The five natural elements of ether, earth, fire, water and air are used to create it.
People are beginning to recognize yoga and naturopathy as remedies whose effectiveness has been demonstrated in various ways. Naturopathy and yoga courses and degrees are becoming extremely popular among aspiring professionals to pursue a successful career in the field, combining their education with a healthy lifestyle.
Yoga & Naturopathy Classes
Candidates must pass their 10+2 science courses with a minimum of 45% in physics, chemistry and biology to pursue a career in yoga and naturopathy. An integrated study of natural medicine, as well as current therapeutic approaches, is part of the program. The program includes hands-on workshops in addition to medical history and theory to provide in-depth training in naturopathy and yoga. Interested candidates can choose from the following courses:
BNYS: The Bachelor of Naturopathy and Yogic Sciences is a medical degree program in India that focuses on naturopathic medicine and therapeutic yoga. This program lasts 5.5 years (4.5 years of courses plus one year of internship). Students must pass the NEET UG exam to be admitted.
B.Sc. in Yoga and Naturopathy: The bachelor’s degree in yoga and naturopathy is a bachelor’s degree focused on naturopathy and the use of yoga to heal medical problems. Students must score a minimum of 50% on their 10+2 exams.

Yoga and naturopathy as a career
Yoga and naturopathy are gaining popularity in India. You will work with a diverse group of patients as a naturopath, from the elderly with chronic health conditions to pregnant women and their children, as well as people who are continually worried. Many people have become interested in the profession because of its natural foundation, especially in the international community, and the number of physicians practicing naturopathy has increased dramatically. Yoga, a fantastic stress reliever, is gaining popularity with international tourists looking for a calming vacation, increasing the demand for yoga teachers.
A bachelor’s degree program will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the subject over the course of three years, encompassing both practical and theoretical knowledge. The Yoga and Naturopathy Diploma, on the other hand, is a shorter course that gives you the same benefits in less time and money. After completing the course, students can work in yoga and naturopathic centers, AYUSH, clinics and hospitals, health clubs, event and sports centers and university institutes.
Here are the possible work opportunities for students-
❖ Yoga Trainer
❖ Consultant in Ayurveda
❖ Ayurvedic Doctor Assistant
❖ Ayush Practitioner
❖ Professor Ayush
❖ Health Club Instructor
❖ Dietary and Ayurvedic specialist
❖ Naturopath doctor
❖ Physical trainer
❖ Yoga-Aerobic Instructor
❖ Assistant Research Officer
❖ Para-clinical specialist
If you enjoy interacting with people and gently helping them maintain or improve their health and well-being, yoga and naturopathy may be right for you. People are increasingly looking for such experts to help them improve their health. If this subject interests you, enrolling in an industrial training school will be the most important decision you will make, as the scope and needs of this field are limitless.
