Yogacharya Arvind

Founder Director

Introduction

I was introduced to Yoga, guided into this journey of self-discovery by holding my hands by Dr Ramachandra Bhatt, the chief Acharya of Veda Vijnana Gurukulam, Vice-Chancellor of SVYASA Yoga University, Bangalore.

Veda Vijnana Gurukulam is a Vedic-Yogic monastery wherein students study, speak and live Sanskrit. The Yogic, The Vedic and Vedanta texts are studied in Sanskrit while practicing what you study is given the most importance. By doing so, you receive the knowledge of the tradition and practice of Yoga from the source while practicing as it is taught makes you live with what you learned.

Exploring ‘The Art of Teaching Yoga’

During Yoga Teacher Training Courses with Yogacharya Arvind, you will be exploring the art of teaching Yoga. It is not just about sharing the knowledge of how to practice an asana. You should assess the student’s abilities, aspects to work on and then guide into exploring the territories they can possibly discover that they couldn’t be without the support of the teacher.

The Body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in

– B K S Iyengar

Yoga is a perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are. The journey then begins.

– The Upanishad

You are not a body with a soul within. You are the soul residing in a body.

– The Gita
