Namaste & Welcome!

Akhanda Yoga Institute was founded by Himalayan Master Yogrishi Vishvketu to support people to realize 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 and Retreat and Shree Jungle Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh

- Many Dual Accreditation Registered Yoga Teacher Training Courses

- Yoga Workshops and Retreats, Online Courses, and Community Events

- Akhanda Yoga Online, a brilliant online studio with hundreds of full-length classes


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.

Yogrishi Vishvketu

Yogrishi Vishvketu's journey in Yoga began during his childhood at Kanva Ashram in North India, and he went on to earn a PhD in Yoga Philosophy.

With over four decades of dedicated practice, he has imparted his wisdom to more than 5,000 Yoga teachers through intensive training at his ashram in Rishikesh and transformative retreats across the globe.

How do we share wellbeing with the world?

The first place we started is the name. '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.

We share wellbeing with the world by sharing authentic, proven techniques and a holistic toolkit of Yogic practices, including:

Asana | Pranayama | Mantra | Meditation | Yogic Philosophy

...alongside relevant life Wisdom from the Vedas and Tantras, Ayurveda, and Jyotish.

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.

Sansar Gyaan Pathshala School

Our school came to life through the visionary concept of Yogrishi Vishvketu, with the noble aim of providing education to a rural region in Northern India. This area had limited access to schools, especially for girls.

Sansar Gyaan Pathshala means 'World Knowledge Lessons.' Thanks to the generous support from the Akhanda Yoga family, Guru Ji's dream of establishing the school became a reality.

The funding for our organization is made possible by kind contributions from ashram guests, Akhanda students, and YTT graduates. Currently, we have a thriving school that can accommodate up to 300 children. Emphasizing inclusivity, our school is non-sectarian and multi-faith, warmly welcoming children from diverse backgrounds. It is conveniently situated near the village of Pritamgarh, merely two hours away from Rishikesh in northern India. Our students' families reside in rural villages within a 6 km radius, and many students walk up to 3 km daily to attend school. The majority of our students come from farming families.

At Sansar Gyaan Pathshala School, we are committed to providing a standard of education that surpasses that of traditional state schools. We aspire to create a sustainable community and contribute positively to the betterment of the world.

Our School Story

Together, we strive to make a significant and meaningful impact on the lives of these children and the community as a whole.
