Since its inception, the Centre has taught over 25000 yoga classes at the Centre, and another 15000 classes involving individuals, groups and organizations, outside the Centre. More than 50000 people have taken classes with us, mostly in Gurgaon, over the past 15 years. Currently, over 1500 new people come to the Centre every year, to try classes, and make yoga a way of life. You can be one of them.
The Centre receives over 900 people every week in 100 open classes.
All the teachers at the Centre have taken an international residential teachers’ training course (recognized by Yoga Alliance) at ashrams around the country.
These and other courses and workshops were created by Swami Vishnudevananda, who spread the yoga movement in the United States,Canada, Europe and India in the last 50 years. Each teacher goes through the same rigorous Gurukula system of training – learning by repetitive practice under the supervision of senior, more experienced teachers. They learn to have sensitivity, respect and a deep understanding of the human condition.
The yoga class and yoga system which we teach, is one of the most popular forms of yoga in the world today, easy to begin and to understand and to practice.
