Patanjali Yog Peeth UK Trust is a UK-based Registered Charity promoting healthy living and wellbeing in the Community through yoga. Over the last 4 years, Patanjali Yog Peeth UK Trust (PYPT) have been conducting free Yoga classes in the UK and successfully introduced hundreds of thousands of people to live a healthier life and keeping fit. Our inspiration comes from the teachings of the world renowned Hindu Spiritual Leader & Yoga Guru – Swami Ramdev, who has a following of over 80 million people worldwide and whose TV show in India attract more than 20 million daily.

Swami Ramdev has dedicated his life for the betterment of humanity and the community. We honour his work and integrity, his embrace of cultural differences, contribution to social inclusion, community regeneration and cohesion, interfaith relations and race relations throughout the world. Swami Ramdev promotes harmony and understanding, and empowering others to follow in their pursuit of worthwhile endeavours. Swami Ramdev is an inspiration to others.

Swami Ramdev’s impact in India as well as in USA, Canada, UK and parts of Africa is without doubt inspiring – he has revolutionised Yoga, leading to millions of people incorporating it in their daily routines with businesses taking yoga breaks and schools making it a part of their daily assemblies. Under his guidance, a large number people have claimed to have improved health and found relief from stress and persistent ailment.

In line with the charity’ mission PYPT is committed to improving the health and daily lifestyle of the people of the UK. PYPT wish to propagate Yoga as a "free" medicine through in-depth research in accordance with the parameters of modern medical science, so that everyone may avail its benefits in order to attain sound health. Furthermore, if possible we intend to create an environment in the departments of Health, Education, Communities, Armed Forces, Industry and Business to inspire them to adopt Yoga as a regular and necessary practice for preventative and curative healthcare and to educate on establishing a healthy lifestyle.

By furthering the benefits of Yoga, PYPT believe that we can aim to build bridges between communities by establishing a healthy environment that creates greater understanding towards diverse cultures, social environments and religious beliefs. Health includes not only the physical body but also spiritual, mental, and self-discipline – “Good Health is Humanity’ Birthright” and we firmly believe that everyone can achieve a healthy lifestyle through Yoga.

In April 2010, His Holiness Swami Ramdev along with more than 50 prominent Hindu Spiritual Leaders, including His Holiness Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati Maharaj (Muniji), Sant Shree Morari Bapu, Pujya Rameshbhai Oza, and the exiled Tibet spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, joined hands in Haridwar during the Maha Kumbh mela for the blessing ceremony to mark the launch of the landmark publication of the Encyclopaedia of Hinduism, which took more than 15 years for compilation.

About Pranayam Yoga:
This particular form of Yoga is non-religious, non-political and non-competitive. This way of life teaches relaxation of the mind and body, enabling the individual to eliminate mental and physical tension. The unique sequences of breathing and physical exercises are especially designed to improve concentration and circulation. The philosophy of Yoga is centred on achieving complete harmony between our body and mind through special exercise (posturing), breathing and meditation. The aim of Yoga is to live a healthy living and attain self-enlightenment.

Mission Statement:
To help raise awareness of healthy living and health awareness across the UK, to promote Yoga as a preventative and curative healthcare measure, to promote health and healthy living, to promote unity through good health and healthy living and Ayurveda – a system of traditional alternative medicine developed in India.

In September 2009, two of Swami Ramdev’s followers, Sam and Sunita Poddar (Trustee of PYPT UK) of Glasgow, bought an uninhabited Island called Little Cumbrae for more than £2 million pounds and donated it to PYPT. Little Cumbrae Island now also known as ‘Peace Island’, is a tiny island off Scotland’s west coast with jagged cliffs, a lighthouse and superb landscape, will become the International Yoga Centre for the Charity. Within the next 18 months the Island is expected to become a destination for pilgrims and a Meditation and Ayurveda Centre for Yoga practitioners from all over the world.
