Yoga New Zealand is a not for profit association of members dedicated to the tradition of Yoga.

A brief history

Yoga New Zealand was launched in 2016 at the 5th Annual International Yoga Festival and Conference.

The intent behind forming Yoga New Zealand is to create an independent registry body inclusive of all traditions and styles of yoga. This reflects the growth of yoga globally.

As an arm of Yoga Australia, a not-for-profit operating under this name since 1999, Yoga New Zealand makes use of the administration office in Melbourne, Australia while offering its New Zealand members country-specific benefits.
