Our Mission

The Japan Yoga Therapy Society was established in 2003.  Our mission is to improve the physical, psychological, social and spiritual health of the general public by promoting yoga therapy and research, which is based on traditional yoga practices from India and informed by modern medicine and psychology .

Collaboration with Scientific Yoga Institutions in India

  • Yoga therapy had its beginnings in the 1920’s, when yoga-related scientific research began with the establishment of the Kaivalyadhama Yoga Research Institute in Lonavla, Maharashtra State in India.
  • Since then, more than 30 universities established yoga departments, including 8 colleges of yoga and naturopathic medicine.
  • Among them was the academic wing of the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation, which was recognized by the Indian government as a yoga university in May 2002 and named the Swami Vivekananda Anusandhana Sansthana (SVYASA) . Masters and doctorate degrees can be obtained there.
  • The above Foundation has a yoga therapy facility with medical doctors, treating more than 10,000 people with psychosomatic disorders every year.
  • Since 1987, we have had close ties with SVYASA, offering yoga therapist trainings, as well as ongoing education and seminars to promote research and awareness about yoga therapy, especially in Japan.
