First National Yogasana Sports Championships Held In Odisha

After successfully hosting hockey and other sporting events, Odisha is now going to host the first Physical National Yogasana Championships.

Odisha is now aiming high to become the global stage for nurturing Yogasana as India’s Heritage Sport to the world. Organised by the National Yogasana Sports Federation (NYSF), in association with the Govt. of Odisha; India’s first Physical National Yogasana Championships from 11th to 13th November 2021 in Bhubaneswar has been declared.

Over 500 bright and young Yogasana Sports athletes from across 30 states will participate in this path-breaking event. In its endeavor to create a global brand of Yogasana as a Competitive Sport with high standards and benchmarks and supporting India’s vision to make Yogasana as a sport with an Olympic Roadmap, the National Yogasana Sports Federation (recognised by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India) is consistently building a strong culture of fitness, competition, well-being, and growth through the practice and development of Yogasana.

Yoga has been at the heart of wellness globally and to ensure that our youth understand and appreciate Yoga, we have now packaged Yogasana as Sport and learning from Kabaddi and Cricket.

Yogasana sport for both male and female categories has been included in Khelo India Youth Games, 2021. The Government of India’s recognition makes NYSF eligible for financial assistance for the conduct of national championships in all the categories, viz. Senior, Junior, and Sub-junior and participation in international sporting events.
