Student: “I’m doing yoga, I have changed so much”

Yogrishi: “Not really! You are just allowing yourself to be who you really are!"

A daily, committed asana and pranayama practice allows you to rebalance and create alignment between your physical, mental and pranic bodies.

Say yes to yourself and join us for this powerful practice series to explore Who You Really Are!

Without knowing who you really are, your layers of existence vibrate in a scattered, misguided dance.

Yoga Nidra and meditation are powerful practices for self-care and deep inner reprogramming. Releasing blockages in your physical body, breathing patterns, and conscious and subconscious mind, using one paired thought and action at a time - a vital skill for manifestation! Join us live or catch up with the recordings!

Join the Akhanda Yoga Global Community each month during the powerful time of the New and Full Moon for Ancestral Healing Rituals. Each lunation you will connect & heal either to the paternal and maternal lineages, through these powerful and transformative practices.

What are the people saying?

 What – laughing in yoga?

An enthusiastic YES!!! When does one get the opportunity to study with a Himalayan Yoga Master from the comfort of your own home? Where can one meet wonderful souls throughout the world united by a desire to learn and grow? Look no further than here! Akhanda Yoga has made this possible through their Virtual YTT200 course. Friday night and reasonably scheduled weekend classes allowed attending this class while working my regular position. I enjoyed the philosophy and holistic lifestyle approach Vishva-ji and his team embrace. As I expanded in this course, my ability to thrive in COVID-19 chaos increased. I was more calm because of pranayama and asana practice, had solutions appear through meditation and became more centered and grounded through sounding and yogic philosophy. The combination of zoom classes from excellent teachers around the world, pre-recorded classes, reading and small group sessions provide a meaningful, broad based experience, perhaps a bit more broad if one attended in an ashram. Our cohort continues to meet through WhatsApp to celebrate our growth and continue our practice. As I speak with other yoga students and teachers, they commented Akhanda’s YTT200 level offers more dimensions than many other programs. Oh, and did I mention that laughter is included and celebrated? Highly recommend!!

Akhanda Yoga is truly exactly what it states – complete and whole! The learning experience with Akhanda Yoga was incredible as they strive for classical authenticity in teaching the origins of yoga. If one wants a beautiful journey into learning about yoga supplemented with unsurpassed wisdom and knowledge of this classical practice – Akhanda Yoga is the training program for you! My program was completed online – I can only imagine how experiential this program is in person!

Dr. Rashi Mehta

What a life-transforming experience! The holistic side of Akhanda Yoga has really spoken to me and I am now a confident, enthusiastic Yoga teacher who is proud to carry its wisdom to the world! I really appreciate this learning from all of the wonderful and knowledgeable teachers/yogis. The program was planned at the perfect pace and if there is any difficulty, teachers and supporters were there to fully assist us with kindness and open heart.

Thank you, Akhanda Yoga.

 Yogarishi Vishvketu and his team at Akhanda Yoga bring yoga back to its roots. It was so wonderful to find this and such an authentic style of teaching. Attention is given to the five principles being Asanas, pranayama, mantra, meditation and Vedic philosophy. I felt completely supported by the team throughout the process and continue to feel this support. I do not hesitate to recommend this school very highly. Warm, authentic and highly professional environment.
