The clairvoyant administrators of Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar had foreseen that in days to come, the need of inclusion of Yoga and natural life style in order to receive a “disease free life” shall rule the humanity. It was with this view point that along with the curricular provision of teaching Yoga and Naturopathy, the process of its promotion and propagation on the base of Ayurvedic guide lines in the society was initiated by the Swasthavrutta department of Shree Gulabkunverba Ayurved College, Jamnagar since the year 1982. The seed then sown grew up as Institute for Naturopathy-Yoga and Physiotherapy (I.N.Y.P) in the year 1995 as a self supported independent institute, which kept on developing to form a full-fledged independent self financed MAHARSHI PATANJALI INSTITUTE FOR YOGA NATUROPATHY EDUCATION AND RESEARCH in the year 2000 A.D.
Since its coming in to being, the institute is carrying out various activities to promote the science of Yoga and Naturopathy among the people along with implementing various academic courses. These courses include some that have been designed & forwarded by the Central Council for Research in Yoga & Naturopathy (C.C.R.Y.N.), New Delhi. The institute, at present has its own separate Yogasium and Naturopathy Complex having well equipped Naturopathy - Gymnasium Depts., Yoga halls, Library etc.
For an effective administration and guidance of the activities of the institute, a "Governing Body" has been formed. Hon'ble Vice Chancellor and Hon'ble Registrar of G.A.U. happen to be its Chairman and secretary respectively. Besides this, other members of the Governing Body are nominated from among the members of Senate – Syndicate of Guj. Ayu. Uni., members nominated by the Government etc. For facilitating the routine administrative activities, the institute has various administrative posts as well.
The main motto of the institute is to create health awareness in the society by the means of Yoga and Naturopathy and to promote and propagate our oriental and traditional heritage in the form of the sciences of Yoga and Naturopathy based on Ayurvedic guidelines.
