We believe wellbeing is your birthright.


Akhanda Yoga Institute was founded by Himalayan Master Yogrishi Vishvketu to support people to realise their unique, individual potential.

We use thoughtfully preserved yoga and wellbeing techniques to nurture self-healing and support balanced self-development.

Akhanda Yoga Institute is an educational organization that includes Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram (founded 2007) and Jungle Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh; Yoga Teacher Training courses; Yoga workshops, courses, and events; and Akhanda Yoga Online, a robust online studio with hundreds of full-length classes available.

Yogrishi Vishvketu began training in Yoga as a child in Kanva Ashram, North India. He has a PhD in Yoga Philosophy, has practiced for more than 40 years, and has trained more than 5,000 Yoga teachers over the past 25 years at his ashram in Rishikesh and in retreats around the world.

Yogrishi Vishvketu founded Akhanda Yoga Institute to create a global community of Yoga practitioners and teachers who can rely on the simple tools they learn, and apply them to everyday life — resulting in wholeness: emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.

Our mission is to help people experience oneness and wellbeing by sharing thoughtfully preserved Yoga wisdom and techniques.

We want as many people as possible to experience their true nature and realize that wellbeing and happiness is their birthright.

How do we share wellbeing with the world?

We do it by sharing authentic, proven techniques and a holistic toolkit of Yogic practices: Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, meditation and Yogic philosophy alongside relevant life wisdom from the Vedas and Tantras, Ayurveda, and Jyotish.

Akhanda means whole and indivisible and Akhanda Yoga Institute supports people in their quest to achieve wholeness. Our expertise is to use time-honoured tools to nurture self-healing and support balanced self-development and help people realise their unique, individual potential.

Our goal is to make our teachings accessible to everyone. Practices are available at different levels of physical intensity from restorative to dynamic, and beginner to advanced. A practice becomes advanced when the practitioner experiences it at deeper levels of awareness — not because it is more physically demanding.


The act of deciding, for yourself, how to improve your skills, capabilities and character, and taking action to do this.
