Pondicherry Yogasana Association, which is the official body for Yoga Sports in Pondicherry. Founded by Yogamaharishi Dr Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj in 1975, the PYA has been active in conducting Yoga Sport events such as 32 Pondicherry State Level Yogasana Championships, 19 Swami Gitananda Best Youth and Child Award Competitions and a State Level ‘Himalaya’ Yoga Olympiad Competition. We have also assisted the Govt of Pondicherry, Tourism Dept in conducting the International Yoga Festival for the past 24 years.
Yoga Sport is the best activity for youth of our beloved country as it entails virtually no infrastructure nor equipment that is required in other sports such as Cricket, Hockey etc. It acts as a catalyst in stimulating the youth to take up a holistic practice of Yoga that has been scientifically proved to be of great physical, mental and emotional benefit for the individual. Yoga is a preventive science and by our youth taking up its practice we can save great man power and money power of our nation that is otherwise pumped into the health (disease!) system.
We are planning to conduct the 33rd Pondicherry State Yoga Sport Championship to be held on 17th & 18th November 2018 and request you to publicize the competition in your school / college / institute and send maximum number of participants from your side.
