Our Approach of Teaching Yoga & Meditation

We feel yogic science is the most valuable gift to entire humanity by disciplining the body-mind-heart for holistic and harmonious living. Its practices allow us to have greater clarity and understanding to many subtle aspects of the body mind and spirit for complete integration and balance. We are influenced by the teachings of many traditional and contemporary sages, yogis, masters, and our courses cover the practices from many traditions, paths, and schools while keeping the pure essence. The core theme of our teachings is to impart the experiential, life-transformational, and spiritual aspects of the numerous forms of yogic practices for holistic growth and inner journey. Our instructions hold a unique combination of insights and practices of many ancient and modern masters.

India means the Adventure of the Buddhas, the exploration of thousands and thousands of years into the inner world of man. India represents the inner search, the inner quest. It has nothing to do with politics, history, geography, time, and space. But it has something to do with the ultimate quest of man, the quest to know “Who am I? India has been the very heart of the East and devoted to the expansion of human consciousness. Everything that has happened in the East started happening through India. It still remains an undercurrent; it is still alive, not dead. Of course, from the surface everything has disappeared; but in the innermost core something of Buddha, something of Krishna, something of Patanjali still continues. It cannot die, it is eternal.

India is the only land in the whole world, strangely, which has devoted all its talents in a concentrated effort to see the truth and to be the truth. You cannot find a great scientist in the whole history of India. It is not that there were not talented people, it is not that there were not geniuses. Mathematics was founded in India, but it did not produce Albert Einstein. The whole country, in a miraculous way, was not interested in any objective research. To know the other has not been the goal here, but to know oneself.

For ten thousand years millions of people persistently making a single effort, sacrificing everything for it- science, technological development, riches – accepting poverty, sickness, disease, death, but not dropping the search at any cost. It has created a certain noosphere, a certain ocean of vibrations around you. If you come here with a little bit of a meditative mind, you will come in contact with it.
