About the Fédération Inter-enseignements de Hatha Yoga

FIDHY – Federation Inter enseignements de Hatha Yoga – is an association of yoga teachers and schools. It is open to various yoga traditions and their ancrage in the West. It unites yoga centers, teachers and their students and anyone practicing yoga interested in openness and research on Hatha Yoga.
Yoga was introduced in France in the 50’s by pioneers such as Keirnetz and Eva Ruchpaul, André Van Lysebeth, Lucien Ferrer, Roger Clerc. They developed their own teaching methods and trained mary people in the art of Hatha Yoga, who, in turn, wished to pass on their knowledge. Yoga teacher training schools appeared all across the country. Yoga is originally from India and draws its roots from many ancient traditions. Yoga federations started to appear to bring together all the various cultures and inform people about yoga. With the teaching of yoga becoming a profession, a serious structure was needed to ensure standards and quality of the art was sustained.
In June 1980, a small group of graduates from the Eva Ruchpaul Institute, decided to create the Fidhy (initially named International Federation of Hatha Yoga). In June 1996, the Fidhy was voted a national federation and in March 1998, joined the European Union of Yoga. The federation changed its name to Federation Inter-enseignements De Hatha Yoga, intended as a dynamic structure for yoga professionals and enthusiasts to share ideas, research and their love of the art. The list of elected FIDHY presidents is as follows : René Artaud, Christiane Sarrabezolles, Sylvia Ceccomori, Arié Rubin, Elisabeth Cuvillier, Claire Bornstain, Evelyne Sanier-Torre, Nicole Martin, Muriel Lagarde-Maisl, Daniele Laffond, Catherine Laugée, Virginie Zajac. Since its beginnings, the Fidhy has always tried to be a link between India and the West. Some teachers were taught by Indian yogi, others by Western professionals.

Various activities are organised by the FIDHY to stimulate communication, experimentation and reflection between teachers of different backgrounds : seminars, all-day meetings, conferences, congress.
