The predecessor of AAY was created in 1975 - the Yoga section of the Slavia VŠT Sport club. At that time it was a great achievement, as yoga was on an ideological blacklist in Czechoslovakia. In its present form, the AAY was established in 1990 as an NGO. Since 1992 it is one of the founding members of the Slovak Yoga Association (www.saj.sk). The SYA is a regular member of the European Union of Yoga since 2004.
