Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west, following the success of Swami Vivekananda in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the 1980s, yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the world. Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise; it has a asanas, meditative and spiritual core. IYC with the main aims to popularize the Non-Olympic Sports and INOC-Charter as well as generating funds for all Non-Olympic Sports, which are the members of International Non-Olympic Committee-INOC and National Non-Olympic Committee-NNOCs further funds for its International Sports Federations and National Sports Federations, which shall manage through INOC and NNOCs of their respective country.
