To ensure the continued natural unfettered development of Yoga for all to enjoy

Open Source Yoga Unity (OSYU) was formed to provide a common voice, and the pooling of resources, to resist the enforcement of the copyright protection of any Yoga style thereby ensuring its continued natural unfettered practice for all to enjoy and develop.

While we appreciate the teachings of yoga teachers, we do not believe that they have the legal right to impose control over another's Yoga teaching or practice. Yoga exists in the public domain.

For hundreds, even thousands of years, the wisdom of yoga has evolved and grown in the hearts and minds of teachers and students.

We encourage the free flow of information, including the wisdom of yoga, to all people.

Joining OSYU will allow members to discuss the natural evolution of yoga techniques and practices as well as the mentality and conduct prohibiting this evolution.
