The word Yoga is derived from Sanskrit Yuj – which means to unite or integrate. The Hon’ble Prime Minister has desired to spread India’s traditional knowledge worldwide with credible systems which shall provide India the leadership in assuring quality of Yoga practices across the world.
The Ministry of AYUSH in pursuance of the above and in the wake of declaration of International Day of Yoga recognizes there is a huge demand for Yoga experts at national and international level. The Ministry of AYUSH identified QCI to develop a Voluntary Scheme for Evaluation and Certification of Yoga Professionals.
It has designed the Scheme for Voluntary Certification of Yoga Professional and Yoga Schools, by adopting the principles and requirements laid down in the international standard, ISO/IEC 17024:2012 (E) General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons.
The main focus of these certifications, is to verify the competence of Yoga Professionals and Yoga Schools who provide Yoga lessons/classes.
Benefits of these certifications:
- This will help increase your or your centre’s credibility
- These certifications will be internationally recognised
- The certified yoga professional’s directory would be public. Thus, any client/student can find your credentials, thus improving visibility
- With the increasing demand for Yoga, certification for Yoga Professions/School would become a necessity in the near future
