China Yoga Sports Federations is a non-profit organization, dedicated to developing and promoting Yoga Asana as a sport. CYSF was founded in 2016, and is an Exclusive National Member Federation under IYSF.
Yoga Asana competitions originated in India hundreds of years ago, and are still being conducted there today. Yoga Sports are athletic competitions demonstrating the beauty of demanding yoga postures through the dedication, endurance, and unyielding determination of the competitors. CYSF is now bringing this spirit of healthy competition to China.
CYSF believes that increased awareness of the sport of Yoga Asana will encourage existing practitioners to sharpen their skills through training, dedication, and devotion to the sport, and will inspire new practitioners.
CYSF’s mission is to promote yoga asana as a sport. Our members are athletes, coaches, and judges. We develop rules and scoring, provide training for judges and coaches, and organize events.
Our vision includes advocating the practice of yoga as a means to better human health, healing, and mental and physical well-being, for all ages, through education, outreach programs, and sponsorships of yoga events.
