It is my satisfaction that instead of passing my life in the jungle, obscure and lonely, by some certain inspiration I have been directed to reveal to the public what I felt is truth about this science.” – Shri Yogendra Ji, Founder, The Yoga Institute
With this mission at its core, The Yoga Institute started on its noble mission of spreading Yoga to one and all.
