Yoga Vini's dedicated teachers and well-designed curriculum ensure to bring out the best and provide an easy way to understand and implement these techniques. Healthy body, peaceful mind, and free soul are the goals of these ancient techniques. They believe in the importance of the spine, as in how it is connecting all the outermost and innermost levels of your being. Understanding the role of the spine makes the ancient tools of asana, pranayama, and meditation more connected and easier to understand. Only the knowledge that makes sense for you will become part of your practice. Understanding the spine is very helpful in this learning process. Yoga Vini's approach of teaching is not flashy or glamorous, however, it is deeply nourishing and empowering; helping you to avoid the dangers of an impatience or overzealous practice, and more importantly, to experience the profound, lifelong benefits of starting small. You will be empowered with your own understanding of is really happening in your body as you practice, and how each posture is supporting your overall health. At the end of the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course, all participants who have attended the specified number of yoga classes and passed the exams will receive a yoga teacher training certificate of completion. The program is registered with The Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level, so graduates can become registered yoga teachers.

Ashram life

The word ashram comes from the Sanskrit word, Srama, which means "religious exertion". Nowadays the term "ashram" is used to describe any facility used by a spiritual community. The lifestyle at an ashram is for the most part very different from the one you are used to back home.

It has a set schedule that has to be followed throughout the day without any distractions, helping with chores (Karma yoga) while pursuing your spiritual goals. You wake up early with the sunrise, practice breathing exercises followed by asanas, eat simple food and learn about philosophy, getting familiar with Indian traditional culture, listening to inspiring Satsang in the evening, singing mantras.

It is known for its simplicity that represents an opportunity to step away from a hectic lifestyle and return to a simpler way of living. This simplicity helps you to understand the importance of things in life you generally take for granted.

It’s a place to nourish your soul, deepen your spiritual practice, and awaken to your true Self. It promotes a healthy lifestyle and self-awareness through self-discipline and reflection. The ashram consists of basic facilities with living quarters, dining hall, outdoor yoga hall (Dome) all surrounded by the beautiful nature of the Himalayas.
