Founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a global humanitarian and thought leader in yoga and meditation, who is fully established in the self. The school seeks to expand the world’s understanding of yoga through education and training that is steeped in the vedas – the original roots of yoga – and a long lineage of masters while making it accessible and applicable for modern day use for people of all ages, abilities, cultures and religion. Through a comprehensive and multidimensional science based education, the schools’ programs integrate the four paths of yoga – Ghyana (wisdom), Karma (service and action), Bhakti (love and devotion) and Hatha (effort). Program graduates undergo a rigorous training and are equipped with a deep and personal understanding and experience of yoga that enables them to bring the different dimensions of yoga to their students. The simplicity of Sri Sri’s approach to yoga combines the fundamental principles of self practice (sadhana), service (seva) and expansion of the self (satsang) – this unique approach empowers individuals to thrive and society to blossom in human values.
