The development and promotion of Yoga and Naturopathy could not be attained as expected at par with other Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy due to the great dearth for the qualified manpower in these disciplines. However, in the recent years many NGO’s and Voluntary Organizations have come up to establish Yoga and Naturopathy Health Homes as well as Degree level Colleges. At present, there are ten such Colleges in India, three in Karnataka, four in Tamil Nadu, one each Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh & Gujrat. These Colleges are affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore, MGR Medical University, Chennai, University of Health Sciences,Vijayawada and Raipur University, Raipur,Gujrat Ayurveda University, jamnagar respectively. The approach of this Medical Education Course not only encompasses Yoga and Naturopathy philosophy but also emphasizes the clinical tools and modalities necessary to establish a successful practice. These Colleges are endowed with theoretical, practical, clinical facilities which help to train the students multi-dimensionally. In this course, the students are offered to study diverse holistic treatment modalities which are drugless ones alongwith the basic sciences. 

It is quite interesting that many of the Modern Medical Institutes of the Country took a serious effort to prove the efficacy of Yoga and its various aspects. Accepting Yoga as a tool for balanced and alround development of human personality, some of the Universities have established a Yoga Department, in which Teacher’s Training Programmes of one year duration is going on. There are 28 Universities which impart Certificate, Diploma and Degree courses in Yoga. UGC is also promoting Yoga by financing the Universities to start the Yoga courses in the Universities. Some Universities are imparting Yoga education ranging from Certificate to Ph.D level courses. Many Universities are likely to start Yoga Department in the years to come. In many of the foreign Universities, the faculty of Yoga has been established and the research work is in progress. Some of the States are proposing to adopt Yoga in their educational curriculum. About one thousand Yoga teachers have been appointed in different Schools of Kendriya Vidyalaya. Delhi Government and New Delhi Municiple Corporation.
There are many countries other than India where Yoga is being practiced regularly for treatment of psychosomatic disorders.

It is quite encouraging to know that in many of the western countries the education of Naturopathy is greatly emphasized and due recognition has been given. There are several Colleges in various parts of USA, Germany, Britain etc. e.g. National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Oregon, British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy, London.
