What styles of yoga you teach?

We stick to traditional hatha yoga being the path to Raja Yoga based on Yoga Sutras by Patanjali, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita, Shiva Samhita and works of T. Krishnamacharya and B. K. S. Iyengar.

And, of course, the great Sukshma Vyayama Yoga as taught by the great Dhirendra Brahmacharya. In Himalayan Yoga Academy, the sukshma vyayama system is taught by the 105 years old yogi, Swami Yogananda Maharaj Babaji.

In our school, we put heavy emphasis on the ultimate goal of yoga which is chitta vritti nirodha according to Yoga Sutras. Keeping this goal in mind, one can practice whatever style of yoga he or she is more inclined to. We choose the 'middle way' of yoga practice which is hatha yoga.

Yoga is an ongoing experiment, we believe. Hence, we always incorporate other styles of yoga into our program in order to demonstrate the oneness of all the different practices. In our classes, you can normally find some elements from Iyengar yoga, some of Ashtanga Vinyasa, some of Kundalini yoga, some of Kriya yoga.

By saying 'yoga styles' here, we imply various ways to achieving the same goal which is self-realization, steadiness of mind, merging of the outer with the inner.

Reviews by graduates

I've been there. It was an amazing experience.

It is difficult to find a good place to learn yoga. You know it's only a month and a half, and it is a lot of knowledge. But this school is a truely good one.

A big Russian influence make a really good and organized teaching programm (you don"t find this everywhere in India! ^^).

Class are very clear (even for those who don't have a very good english ;-)). Planning is intense but the time is nicely use.

Teachers there are passionate and make you love yoga more than when you start ( I didn't thought that was possible :-)) But not only.

You can't change a lot in that time (even with a strong mind) but after this course you have a knew comprehension about Yoga, about you, about the life around you...

At the end you are really proud of what you did and very happy<>/em to have this knew knowledge in your life. It is hard to find the right words.

And you will meet people from all parts of the world loving Yoga, India, and travel like you! A lot of good vibes from all people I met there.

Have a nice trip :-)!
