We build on the history, tradition and context of the Indian culture and religion as the pillars of the Yogic System and Philosophy.

To provide and establish a strong and disciplined practice for students, enabling them to have a firm knowledge and experience of the Hatha Yoga Practice.

To enable practitioners to experience a solid one-month practice of the yogic techniques, emerging themselves into the yogic lifestyle. Enabling them to have a deep understanding and direct experience of the theory, practice, origins, context, benefits, effects, and knowledge of the yogic system.

To nurture and support future teachers, educators and practitioners of yoga, who may share and further pass on the ancient knowledge and tradition of this rich cultural heritage.

Location

Vasistha Yoga is based and founded in the Holy, Ancient city of Varanasi (also known as Kashi or Banaras), the abode of Lord Shiva, one of the oldest living cities in the world. Spending one month in the old city, which brings to life the ancient traditions and rituals more than any other city in India, creates a very conducive environment for the study and practice of any of the ancient traditions. Afterall, the city of knowledge, on the banks of the Holy Ganga river, the has the power to make time stand still, enabling us to pause and take time to appreciate the gift of life and the privilege of learning.
