About National Yogasana Sports Federation (NYSF):

In Indian traditions, yoga is not only a meditative and spiritual practice but also a physical exercise. While in modern-day Indian practices, yoga has also evolved into a competitive exercise that lets the practitioners compete in a healthy environment and engage in complex yoga asanas. For the preservation and development of yoga as a competitive sport, a national-wide federation was required to be constituted at the National level to promote ‘Yogasana As A Sport’. In view of the realization of that need, the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India recognized the National Yogasana Sports Federation of India in December 2020.

The NYSF (National Yogasana Sports Federation) has been formed by like-minded stakeholders who intend to create a strong culture of fitness, competition, well-being, and growth through the practice and development of Yogasana. The NYSF is recognized by the India Olympic Association as its associate member and also part of the international federation ‘World Yogasana Sports Federation’.
