40 YEARS YOGA IN MACEDONIA
1972 - 2012

Yoga is live knowledge, "live spirit" which cannot be spread without realized spiritual teachers. Coming to a certain place they start magnetically attracting people who feel the subtle radiation of the spirit. This phenomenon happened in this region with the coming of Teacher Pavlos K. Hassanagas in Skopje in March 1972.

Yoga is a long-lasting aspiration of the human spirit to achieve perfection and infinity and with regard to this, the years of yoga in Macedonia is not a long period. But, for an organization it is significant. Since 1972, many things that seemed impossible, were accomplished with great devotion and effort.

What have these years brought in the field of yoga?
From the first individual lessons, from the Club Of International Youth Friendship, to centers and societies throughout the whole country, organized in the Yoga Federation of Macedonia; from several beginners to thousands of people who passed through the courses; from one assistant to a School For Training The Teaching Staff; from a copied internal bulletin to an appreciated magazine; from skepticism and doubts to a collaboration with scientific and educational institutions and international acknowledgements
