Amma sustains her utmost teaching that selfless service with compassion is the foundation of all other spiritual practices. Through her many activities, she upholds the ancient tradition of Yoga as the recipe for a healthy life, as well as internal and external purity.

With an aim to equip oneself with essential knowledge, tackle life situations, and build a personality and a discriminative mind, based on Amma’s teachings, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM) initiated yoga activities for ashram inmates in 1980. Since those early days, it was part of daily life in Amritapuri. 

Inspired by Amma, monastic residents and trained volunteers of MAM also began teaching Amrita Yoga from the early 1980s, and over those years, people from all walks of life have been initiated into Yoga to lead a peaceful, harmonious, and complete life.  

More than 73 lakh individuals across the globe have participated in Amrita Yoga and Integrated Amrita Meditation programs through MAM’s ashram branches, institutions, international centres and dedicated volunteers.  

Specialist trainers have reached people belonging to all age groups in schools, universities, industrial organizations, corporations, prisons, and India’s Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). This includes MAM’s 150+ centres in India and around the world, 65 Amrita Vidyalayam schools for children, our university – Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amrita Hospitals, our youth wing – Amrita Yuva Dharma Dhara (AYUDH), our self-reliant village program – Amrita SeRVe, our balakendras, and other units.  

Instructors have also led International Day of Yoga (IDY) celebrations worldwide since its inception on June 21, 2015. Amrita Yoga has been an official co-organizer of IDY events, along with the Indian Embassies in Denmark, Chicago and Norway.
