WYA came up with the idea of some Professional Yoga Masters and university professors who were organizing free yoga camps in all around the India. They were teaching yoga in many places such as prisons, hospitals, army camps, universities and schools with the intention of sharing yoga knowledge with society.
2011 – 2014
Once yoga started to become more popular around the world, our masters thought about creating standardization for yoga professionals and spread the Indian tradition of yoga around the world. Therefore; they wanted to stand up as an organization, which works for the social benefit of the society. On 17th November 2011 World Yoga Alliance officially registered and was recognized by Ministry of Human Resource Development (NCT) in New Delhi, which is under central government of India.
2015 – 2017
Narendra Modi, Indian Prime Minister also supported our idea about spreading the yoga tradition of India and raising awareness around the world. Therefore, he launched the International Day of Yoga on 21st of June in 2015 to celebrate yoga unity all around the world.
Within a few years, WYA Organization developed and had 6000 schools and 17,000 teacher members worldwide.
