Patanjali Yogpeeth – USA (PYP-US) Trust was established as a registered US charity in 2008. Its sister organisation, Divya Yoga, is an Indian charitable trust founded in 1995 by Swami Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishan. Like Divya Yoga, PYP-US Trust has many visionary aims and objectives, all focussed around one key aim: to make this world disease-free through a scientific approach to Yog and Ayurved.
PYP-US Trust is inspired by Swami Ramdev Ji who is one of the world’s leading, most popular, and a successful results-oriented yog master. He has become a household name in India owing to his ability to simplify yog techniques for the masses and validate the benefits of yog and pranayam (controlled breathing techniques) combined with aasans (physical exercises) that are part of the ancient Indian Vedic sciences.
Swami Ramdev Ji advocates the power of breath, through the practice of Pranayam, as a remedy for all ailments. He has sparked off a revolution by bringing about a divine transformation of body, mind and soul. Under his guidance, a large number of people have been alleviated from pain and suffering, thus leading healthier, more purposeful lives. Swami Ramdev’s spiritual yog teachings have been internationally celebrated through televised classes and live sessions. His following has rapidly grown from thousands to millions worldwide.
Since 2007 when Swami Ramdev Ji made his first visit to the USA, his international appeal has grown many fold: PYP-US Trust trained yog teachers are giving their time free of cost to raising health awareness in local communities by holding yog classes.
