Welcome to USA Yoga

Yoga Asana competitions originated in India hundreds of years ago and are still being conducted there today. USA Yoga is now bringing this spirit of healthy competition to the United States, where, according to the most recent study by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance, more than 36 million people practice yoga in the US today.

USA Yoga believes that the sport of Yoga Asana will inspire many of these practitioners to improve their practices and encourage many newcomers to take up the practice of yoga and the sport of Yoga Asana.

Our Mission

USA Yoga’s mission is to promote the practice of yoga as a means to improve the physical health and mental well-being of people of all ages and fitness levels, and to advance yoga asana as a sport.

We work to advance yoga as a sport through education, outreach programs, and the sponsorship and facilitation of yoga events. Through these events, USA Yoga provides athletes the opportunity to demonstrate competitive excellence and to inspire others to participate and advance in their own practice.
