Yoga Alliance International (YAI) is a network of dedicated, like-minded people and institutions devoted to the cause of authentic Yoga.
Inspired by Sri. Aurobindo and the Mother of Pondicherry, YAI was founded by Swami Vidyanand, the well-known Yoga Master, assisted by Sri K.M.Chandrashekaran, who has had a lifelong interest in Yoga and allied matters.
YAI has a number of Divisions around the world, each headed by a dedicated Director, who serve as our representatives in their respective countries. They come from all corners of the world and share a passionate commitment to the cause of authentic Yoga traditions.
YAI’s Ambassadors serve as our flag-bearers and take YAI’s message around the world.
