IYSF supports the change towards a more equitable sporting culture worldwide. We believe that the sport of Yoga Asana will inspire practitioners to improve their practices and encourage newcomers to take up the practice of yoga and the sport of Yoga Asana.
We are developing educational programs, rules, and regulations so that the necessary competitive skills can be understood and mastered by member federations and their competitors, coaches, judges, administrators, and yoga studio operators. Successful competitors strive towards mastery of physical strength, stamina, balance, flexibility, breath, and concentration. Competitions are open to all yoga schools and styles. IYSF encourages all to participate.
