According to Swami Vidyanand, the headquarter of YAI Vietnam is located at 149 A Hue street which will also serve as the headquarter for South-east Asia region.
At the ceremony, Tran Thi Diem Huong, President of the World Yoga Alliance in Southeast Asia, emphasized that the purpose of establishing YAI Vietnam is to disseminate knowledge and enhance Yoga practice in Vietnam.
YAI is the first Yoga organization licensed by the Indian government with a worldwide network. The UN General Assembly took June 21 every year as an International Yoga Day to honor the benefits of Yoga to human health./.
