Yogacharya Anil Thakur, Resident Meditation Teacher at Himalayan Yoga Academy
Resident Teacher
Principal Teacher

Yogacharya Anil Thakur Ji is a master of Yoga. He received his degree in Yoga Therapy from the University of Jammu and then graduated from Jain Vishva Bharati University in Rajasthan.

Anil Ji is long time student of classical yoga philosophy and follows the tradition of Tantra Yoga. One of the most significant passions is his dedicated service to his guru Pir Baba. This service is a manifestation of dedication of student to the teacher; it’s a sign of preoccupation of the authority of the teacher and the result of an absolute immersion in the study of spiritual discipline.

This selfless service traditionally has been the choice of the student. Anil Ji, after meeting with Pir Baba just once, immediately recognized him as his exclusive master and guide and since then he has served his mentor with truth and faith, leaving family and home, surrendering to the spiritual practice.
Anil Ji believes that the key of yoga as spiritual practice is the merger with the inner truth through union of traditional tantric techniques, meditation and philosophical vision of yoga.

Testimonials for Yogacharya Anil Thakur

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 :-)!

Reviews by graduates

I had a wonderful experience in my 240-hr Yoga Teacher Training at HYA. I knew I wanted to study in India, and this program was recommended to me by my teacher in California and is known for being one of the most organized and holistic training programs in Rishikesh. The teaching staff is extremely qualified, including some of the top teachers in Rishikesh, and diverse, with some Russian, Western, and Indian instructors, which is definitely a benefit to a YTT. There is a strong focus is on structural alignment of the asanas and teaching practice, which was exactly what I was looking for, but also classes on pranayam, mindfulness, and meditation. Overall, my experience in this teacher training brought me closer to my true self, and HYA still holds a dear place in my heart.
