The Himalayan Yoga Institute was initiated in November 2009 and has at its core the desire to awaken and deepen the interest for yoga and meditation and offer it for the benefit of all. We are eager to help you at every step of your practice and will do our best to assist you along this beautiful path. The principle form of yoga taught by HYI is the Ashtanga version Raja Dhiraja Yoga, which is a highly comprehensive form of yoga, the most complete system of self-development known today. This form includes Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and the original complete system of Ashtanga Yoga with contemporary additions.
Besides Raja Dhiraja Yoga, which is the central, most important practice, we also offer an eclectic range of classes to suit the varying needs and interests of our yoga students. The classes are offered in London, UK all year round.
In addition to classes we are providing a highly comprehensive Yoga Teacher Training. Our focus is on educating highly competent and skilled future yoga teachers. Yoga Alliance registered 200H RYS. This training is for aspiring yoga teachers and yoga practitioners who would like to deepen their practice. The goal of this training program is to produce qualified and inspiring yoga teachers who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline in imparting the yoga experience to others. Our courses focus on both practical and theoretical aspects, with an emphasis on the student’s personal development in yoga and meditation. The yoga teacher training course offers a scientific, systematic and contemporary approach to Yoga studies, practice and research. Our aim is to impart comprehensive knowledge regarding the physical, intellectual, spiritual and social aspects and effects of Yoga. The intensive daily schedule includes two meditation sessions, two yoga classes, two lectures and about an hour of service to the ashram community. One day a week is lecture-free.
