What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa Yoga is a method of yoga practised wherein the Asanas are practised in a specific order developed by Sri T Krishnamacharya.

It is not just the sequence of Asanas put together, rather, every single asana has its own specific sequence to follow and then a proper sequencing of asanas and finally the proper sequencing of asana families to complete the entire practice of Vinyasa Yoga.


This method of practice is called “Vinyasa Krama“.

What is Tristhana Practice?

Tristhana is a three-fold practice element in Vinyasa wherein the specific Asana, Breath, and Drishti are leading the practice.

The Asana refers to Annamaya Kosha, Breath to Pranamaya Kosha and Drishti to Manomaya Kosha.

This three-fold practice is a traditional way of Vinyasa Yoga practice leading to the practice of Bandha, to Dhyana at later stages.

what our students say

Nisha Chandra Segar

I had completed my Vinyasa Teacher Training here last month, and I can honestly say it was such a wholesome experience. I loved that the yoga shala was located away from Mysore city. The shala is peaceful and carries such a strong spiritual energy. It was the perfect environment to study, learn and deepen my yoga practice. The rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. My favourite spot is outdoor yoga shala made out bamboo and it is located next to the Cauvery river.

I can honestly say the teachers are humble, extremely professional and they really do walk the talk. Siddhu is kind and patient. He shares many useful tips and tricks in helping you deepen your asana practice. Nagendra Ji is wise and very professional. Kamal Acharya is fun, knowledgable and yet strict (in a good way). The cherry on top was the Yoga Philosophy class with Rakesh Acharya. I admire how he is able to explain such ancient and complicated concepts in an easy manner that is applicable to our modern day lives today. The whole team is wonderful, including the kitchen staff and cleaning staff- they were always smiling!
I had such a wonderful experience here and I would highly recommend this place for your yoga teacher training. It’s honestly once in a lifetime experience! 🙏🏽❤️😊

Aurelie Rossini

A Beautiful place to enjoy an immersion into Yoga. The ashram is in the middle of nature, a very quiet place that feels like Home. With small groups in class, to allow you to connect with everyone. Intensive training without forgetting about fun, sharing and laughs.
A Special thank you to Rakesh for teaching yoga philosophy in a very accessible way, with always the same passion and interest for the experience of a whole Life.
A BIG Thank you to Nagendra, for his unpriceable kindness and lovely asana classes. Will definitely come back!
