Saudi introduces Yoga in Universities

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has introduced Yoga in all its Universities as part of its efforts to spread awareness and encourage its practice as a lifestyle for all segments of society.

The students can practice Yoga or Yogasana sports on University campuses that the authorities believe will enhance both their mental and physical health. Also, professional Yogasana sports training will be made a part of the competitions locally and internationally.

The Saudi Yoga Committee, in cooperation with the Saudi Universities Sports Federation (SUSF), organized a virtual introductory lecture for all university representatives across Saudi Arabia on Yoga under the title ‘Yoga for University Students of Both Genders’.

The meeting at the SSUF headquarters in the Ministry of Education, Riyadh, came within the framework of an integrated system of programs and initiatives of the Saudi Committee for Yoga, to spread awareness of the benefits of the ancient Indian practice.

The event coincided with the arrival of the first Yoga delegation to the Kingdom from the Asian Yogasana Sports Federation in India for the qualification course for the first Saudi batch of Yoga Referees.

“The committee seeks to achieve its vision of spreading Yoga on a large scale within Saudi society, and therefore it took the initiative to cooperate with the Saudi Universities Sports Federation in order to build a generation of yoga lovers, especially young people, to enjoy physical and mental health,” said Nouf Almarwaai, President of the Saudi Yoga Committee.
