Origins of the CYA

In the western world the culture of Yoga is beginning to emerge strongly as a new alternative towards health practices. Yet, as it is an eastern cultural perception, certain factions of the western world are trying to either control Yoga or exploit yoga; Both in the name of commerce.

The Canadian Yoga Alliance has been active since 2004 with a growing membership of over 2000 Canadian yoga teachers.

The Mission Statement of this alliance is to support the integrity of Yoga practices and philosophy in Canada and to commemorate our Yogic alliance with the East.
