Who Is Saudi Arabia Woman Nouf Marwaai Who Brought Yoga To Saudi Arabia Indians Wishes Her On Rakshabandhan

For recognition of yoga in Saudi, he has also received Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest honor from the then President of India Ram Nath Kovind in 2018. It was very difficult for Nauf to get yoga legalized in Arabia. Even for this he had to face opposition from the fundamentalists of Saudi Arabia. Facing all such challenges, Nauf succeeded in taking yoga to the doorsteps of Saudi Arabia.

People wished Nauf a lot of Rakshabandhan on social media and he also replied to everyone. An Indian user wrote, “Nauf’s life and her becoming a Yogini is so inspiring, it’s a miracle.” Another Indian user tweeted, “Cultural exchange between the Arab world and India has been going on for a long time and Nauf Marwai is successfully carrying forward this legacy.” Best wishes to him from India.

Hassan Sajwani, a local resident of UAE and active on social media, tweeted saying, “Meet Nauf Marwai, a Saudi woman who received Padma Shri award from former President of India Ram Nath Kovind. Nauf is Saudi Arabia’s first certified yoga instructor. He has played an important role in getting the legal recognition of yoga in Saudi Arabia.

Navdeep Suri, who was India’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, praised Nauf and said that I had the opportunity to meet Nauf Marwai on the International Day of Yoga in Abu Dhabi in 2019. He is an inspiration to the youth.

According to the report, until two decades ago, Nauf was the only yoga teacher in Saudi Arabia. He spoke publicly about yoga for the first time in 2004. Also trained thousands of people and many yoga teachers. Nauf approached the administration in 2006 to legalize yoga, but to no avail.

He says that change started coming in 2015. However, at that time some extremists were against women playing and doing yoga. It was at the same time that the United Nations declared 21 June as International Yoga Day.

Not only this, Nauf is very much influenced by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. She says that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personality and his foreign policy are very effective. I got to know about him because of his tireless efforts to make Yoga Day recognized internationally. I am surprised that many yogis and people in Saudi Arabia know him and are aware of his work.
