YOGA RATNA AWARD – The Oscars of Yoga

Today we all feel proud of the fact that Yoga originated in India. However, we hardly pay any heed to the fact that the reason why yoga is still accessible to us is because of the relentless efforts of numerous yoga schools, yoga gurus and yoga enthusiasts. They are the ones who have continued spreading the light in a world that’s enveloped with anger, hate, stress, problems and what not. To make sure these wonderful contributions do not go unnoticed, Shwaasa Yoga School has taken the initiative to recognize these contributors by felicitating them with the ‘Yoga Ratna’ award. We are committed to paying tribute and respect to all those, who have given the ancient science a way to reach out to each and every individual on the planet.

Making this highly prestigious award ceremony a part of the ‘International Yoga Day’ celebrations (on 21st June), we conduct the award ceremony on the night of 20th June. There are different nomination categories and the winner of each category is awarded with the Yoga Ratna statuette, a yogi in Garudasana pose along with other prizes.

We started this felicitation program when 21st of June was declared the International Yoga Day by the United Nations. So far, numerous eminent personalities have been awarded by Shwaasa for their significant contributions to yoga.
