About This Center


The Vedic knowledge of India has been the source of inspiration, and enlightenment for humankind for infinite generations. Ancient Rishis or philosophers of India have discovered some of the deepest mysteries of the human existence and soul.

Founded by Patanjali, Yoga is one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy that helps you understand or realize your inner self. Yoga has stayed relevant for all times, and helped people find their soul and attain spiritual enlightenment.

Derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, Yoga means union of the individual
consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. Yoga is a 5000-
year-old Indian body of knowledge. Though many think of yoga only as a physical
exercise where people twist, turn, stretch, and breathe in the most complex ways,
these are actually only the most superficial aspect of this profound science of
unfolding the infinite potentials of the human mind and soul. The science of Yoga
imbibes the complete essence of the Way of Life.

      “Wonderful Yoga Class and Teacher!”

    Swami Vishnudas yoga classes in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand were an absolute revelation! We took one of his classes and ended up going everyday for over a week while in Rishikesh. He taught a varied mix of Asanas that were physically challenging, technical and left us feeling blissed out at the end of every class. It was quite magical. We highly recommend his yoga classes and wished we could have taken him back home in our suitcase!!!
