This 103-yo Mumbai-based Yoga institute aims at teaching the ways of leading a happy life

The Yoga Institute was established in 1918 by Shri Yogendraji- also known as the Father of Modern Yoga Renaissance.

The pandemic has taught us the importance of indoor activities that help in balancing our mind, body and spirit. Promoting this principle is 'The Yoga Institute' which was established in 1918 by Shri Yogendraji- also known as the Father of Modern Yoga Renaissance. With its simplicity, sincerity and non-commercial outlook, The Yoga Institute strives to teach asanas, pranayam and ethics of everyday life, among other things, to anyone who is looking to lead a happy and healthy life.

The school of life

A school of life heralding the 'Yoga for the Householder' movement in India, The Yoga Institute is a life school that teaches discipline and responsibility. With a belief that a philosophical outlook can instil a positive approach to life, this institute has been teaching and reforming Yoga so as to engage with a larger audience.

Sita Devi Yogendra, life-partner of the founder of this institute, revolutionised the field of Practical Yoga by simplifying asanas and introducing them among women. Her article Yoga for Woman (1934) succinctly expresses her motivation for the same- "From my own experience of the past eight years, I have been able to select and formulate a graduated course of practical training which is applicable particularly to the growing needs of the modern woman."

Over the past 103 years, The Yoga Insitute has grown to cater to all sections of society. Apart from holding yoga sessions, they now provide certified training for instructors as well. This institute has opened up inter-disciplinary avenues in the field of yoga by relating it with psychotherapy and counselling. In a nutshell, it has transformed into a global place that influences life positively.

Home to a one-of-a-kind museum

Inaugurated in 1987, the Shri Yogendra Museum of Classical Yoga presents a historical account of Yoga. It has been conceptualised to depict that Yoga can be a way of living life and it provides guidelines to all those who wish to study Classical Yoga in-depth.

The contributions of The Yoga Institute were rewarded when it received the prestigious Prime Minister's Award for Outstanding Contribution for Promotion and Development of Yoga for the year 2018-19. This institute has ventured out in the field of publication and successfully popularised Yoga through the written word.
