Yoga is a practice that has been passed down from one generation to the next for at least several thousand years. It is an ancient discipline, with deep theoretical and practical roots, and there is a rich textual tradition that underlies and explains the
practice, its applications and its meaning.
Śri Yogendra from The Yoga Institute, Mumbai (The oldest Yoga Institution) was one of the most influential masters of yoga in modern times. His knowledge of Yoga, Ayurveda, Sanskrit and the primary Indian philosophical schools was unrivaled. Yet the main focus of his energy and life-long work was the study, practice and teaching of therapeutic Yoga for supporting health, healing, and personal transformation of house-holders.
Pundit Ji has studied in this tradition in 90’s and his immediate guru is Dr. Jaydev Yogendra (Son of Shri Yogendra). Yoga is a life-long path, which provides ongoing opportunities for learning and refinement. To be a good teacher requires that one be actively applying what they are teaching. UYLS teacher’s Training program models this inside and outside the classroom.
One of the most important aspects of Shri Yogendra’s teaching is that they have shown, simply and clearly, how all of the different aspects of yoga fit together as a single, coherent whole. All of the pieces, including movement/asana, breathing techniques/praṇayama, meditation, gestures/nyasa, sound/mantra, chanting, philosophy, ethics and daily life, etc., work together as a single, unified practice.
At the UYLS Institute, we do not mix various philosophical disciplines. This program is a complete yoga program. Yoga for body, breath, mind, philosophy, personal transformation, therapeutics, etc.; all of it. And all of it explained in ways that makes sense and applies to our modern day culture and life. We’re sure you will find it very intellectually satisfying and affirming to see and feel how each aspect prepares for, aids and enables all the others.

The Foundation of Teaching.
Obviously, a lot of information is presented over the course of the training, but the emphasis is always how to apply the information and how to facilitate the experiences. Yoga is not informational. Yoga is experiential, it must be done, practiced and experienced to be understood and to have an effect on us and thus to change us. The UYLS’s training emphasizes the practical application of yoga and its tools. The training covers not only what the tools are, but how to think about using them, how to understand the way they function (according to the traditional models within which they were created), and how to use them. The result of this process is self-transformation. Gradual, sustainable and meaningful, personal transformation, achieved through the immensely satisfying and interesting path of yoga. These are proven and profound teachings designed to help you, and therefore students, achieve the joy, freedom and health of a person in balance with their most authentic self.
