Yogrishi Vishvketu

Yogrishi Vishvketu (Vishva-ji) is known for his infectious laughter and stories. His holistic approach brings forward ancient wisdom for a modern age incorporating asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation and yogic wisdom in every class. His deepest aim is to inspire people to connect to their true nature, which is fearless, expansive, joyful and playful.

Yoga and meditation should be accessible to all ages, all body types, and all levels of fitness. Raj Yoga was developed for participants who are under-served by mainstream Yoga.
With this unique 100-hour YTT module, you will add this inclusive Yoga style to your teaching services, and learn to tailor Raj Yoga for those who need a very moderate flow, to practice in a chair or even to practice in bed.

What are the people saying?

Akhanda institute is a beautiful place to learn an authentic Yoga. The Yoga Master, Yogrishi and his team are just amazing. Very knowledgeable and always present for any of their students. I now feel part of a wonderful yoga family. Thank you very much for everything. I’m really grateful and feel privileged for all the knowledge you passed on to me.`

Jasmine Connery; YTT Student

My deepest gratitude to the whole Akhanda Yoga family! These trainings have carried me through my deepest transformations and introduced my to so much knowledge and experiences that are hard to put into words. I cannot recommend any of the trainings here enough and I will continue spreading the word. Thank you and I am looking forward to future trainings with Akhanda!

Daniela Schmitt; YTT Student

To all of the organizers of this event a big and resounding CONGRATULATIONS and well done. If anyone had ever told me that through ZOOM I could be enraptured by kirtan sitting in my yoga room I would frankly have found that difficult to contemplate. However that Zoom kirtan was a highlight of my Zoom experiences. I had the energy of everyone’s’ participation in my yoga room.

Thanks for this reminder of the pure joy of kirtan and COMMUNITY. How fortunate we are to have the AY Family.

A big thank you to you Vishva-ji for holding us together and being a beacon of light to many. 

Attendee of Virtual NYE Retreat

Thank you to all the Akhanda Team for a simply wonderful zoom session on New Year’s Eve.  My husband and I enjoyed it so so much!  All the talented people who shared Kirtan with us all and all the interesting offerings which were so inspiring.  So much light and joy! I have watched it twice again since then.  I was particularly fascinated by the Jyotish session with Vish Chatterji – all very inspiring.
