Classical Yoga is a science that combining practical methodology, intellectual understanding, and heartfelt commitment.
It is both applicable and accessible regardless of one's age or stage of life. This traditional, systematic approach promotes purification on physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual levels.
We are committed to learning, experiencing, and sharing the deepest meanings of these ancient teachings, stemming from the timeless tenets of sanatana dharma. The purity and power of these insights would not be possible if not for our Bapuji, Swami Shri Ashutosh Muni.
It is our objective to cultivate the highest aspects of the soul and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with students who are ready to commit to the highest aspects of the Self within.
