Pathanjali Yoga Vidyapeetham, is a great thought and vision of Padmashri P. Parameswarji. It is the first formed yoga institution of Kerala, working actively from the last 20 years creating thousands of Yoga Teachers across Kerala. The powerful slogan of Swami Vivekananda ‘Athmano Mokshartham Jagad Hithaya Cha’ considered as motto for this organization.
Padmashri P. Parameswaran insisted all the people of our yoga centre to consider the mission to produce quality, refined, satvic teachers of traditional yoga. Through this message the awareness of yoga need to be conveyed to all the individuals including those who are situated in remotest region of the country.
In the year 1996 Pathanjali Yoga Vidyapeetham started its activity under the premise of Jagadguru Trust, Chalakudy, on 30th October 1997, on a Deepavali Day. In the same year Swadeshi Shastra Parishad of Kerala started three great movements namely, Yoga Sarani, Ayurveda Sarani and Samskrita Sarani. In this our yoga centre was considered as first yogasarani movement of SSP.
In 2012 Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga (MDNIY) recognized our Yoga center as ‘Vivekananda District Yoga Wellness Centre’.
In the year 2007-08 S-VYASA, deemed University of Yoga, Bangaluru recognized Pathanajali Yoga Vidyapeetham as its first facility centre of S-VYASA - Courses in Kerala. Once S-VYASA recognised Pathanajali Yoga Vidyapeetham, the administration and activities were shifted from Chalakudy to Ernakulam for better functioning and accessibility.
In 2014 Pathanjali Yoga Vidyapeetham registered itself as Pathanjali Yoga Training & Research Centre (PYTRC), as Charitable Society for further development and growth. Now we are extending its vision to unite like-minded yoga organizations for effective spreading of concepts of Yoga and its benefits.
