Explore Akhanda Yoga

From its inception, yoga has been an experiential practice; teachers transmit the seed of knowledge, but true understanding comes through independent practice and mindfulness of the resultant shift on all three levels of being: physical, mental and spiritual. Teachers and students alike are on the quest for self-realization and together create a community that promotes and reflects this goal.

Akhanda Yoga®, formerly World Conscious Yoga Family, was developed by Yogrishi Vishvketu in 2001 to create an international community of yoga teachers trained holistically in all of the diverse aspects of this ancient consciousness-raising tradition. Meaning indivisible, unbroken tradition, entire and whole, Akhanda was the name identified by Yogrishi Vishvketu to encapsulate his holistic view of yoga. Akhanda Yoga® offers Yoga Teacher Training courses (YTT) at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram in Rishikesh, India. Our affiliates in Canada, UK, Australia, USA and Japan also offer our YTT course of study and use our training materials.
