Akhanda, similar to the word yoga in Sanskrit, means indivisible, unbroken tradition, entire, and whole. Akhanda is the first word of a very inspiring Vedic mantra, Akhanda mandala karam – This Cosmos and the manifest universe is one indivisible entity. Akhanda Yoga is the name we have chosen to identify the teachings and approach to class styles of Yogi Vishvketu (Vishva-ji) and Chétana Panwar through their organization, World Conscious Yoga Family. Their intention for Akhanda Yoga is to offer holistic, integrated Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) programs and yoga classes with an emphasis on the balanced sequencing of asana, pranayama, relaxation, mantra and meditation as well as discussions and readings on the yogic lifestyle and yoga philosophy. This integral approach to yoga classes is intended to give students access to more of the diverse teachings and techniques that the yoga system has to offer. When practiced and understood holistically, yoga becomes even more beneficial and helpful for humanity in bringing harmony and balance to our lives, families and to society.
