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

Great place for deep dive in yoga practice with experienced teachers, finding like-minded friends and learning indian culture. In the end of course you will have knowledge about asana alignment, secrets of pranayama, yoga philosophy and metodology of teaching yoga. Big plus for russian speaking yogis, all classes have simultaneous translations through headphones. I highly recommend this place!

Reviews by graduates

It has been a long five week course from 06:00-19:00 mon-sat, day in and day out with not much sleep in between. We all came here thinking we had an idea of what yoga was and quickly discovered we literally knew nothing. But that seed of nothing has now become an internal blossom slowly working its way to the surface- preparing its beauty for the world outside.

The growth and transformation that has occurred here will continue to shape our lives from this day on. The awareness that has been cultivated inside will continue to shine light on the darkest times and keep afloat the pursuit of happiness.

To the friends I made here, may you all go out into the world with new flames inside, sharing the wealth of knowledge we took from HYA.

A big shout out to Saul my Roomie- for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, for sharing the struggles and stresses of YogaTeacherTraining, for being a brother from another mother It would not have been the same without you brother!

Congratulations to all completing the course!!

We can now return to the lives we left and bring new joy to the people who we share this time with.
