QCI has designed the Scheme for Voluntary Certification of Yoga Professionals by adopting the principles and requirements laid down in the international standard, ISO/IEC 17024:2012 (E)
Yoga is a holistic science and technology. It is also the way of living life oriented to spiritual goal of freedom from the bondage of life and birth, freedom from attraction and attachment to the world of three Gunas, and cultivating positive habits of the mind like, living life with acceptance increasing by the day.
The Scheme for Voluntary Certification of Yoga Professionals has been developed by the Quality Council of India at the behest and with the support of the Ministry of AYUSH. It envisages certification by independent third party personnel certification bodies duly accredited as per international standard ISO 17024 by NABCB. The Ministry of AYUSH is not involved in the certification and QCI, as the Scheme owner, may undertake certification directly pending approval of personnel certification bodies under the Scheme.
