Yoga Point - Yoga Poses, Pranayama, Meditation, Lifestyle, yoga therapy

Yoga Vidya Gurukul is now recognized by AYUSH (Yoga and Ayurveda) ministry, Government of India as the Leading Yoga Institution in India.

Our Guruji (Dr Vishwas Mandlik) was awarded the first ever yoga award in India, in 2018, for his outstanding contribution towards the promotion and development of Yoga. We are proud of his achievements and grateful that he continues to inspire, educate and share yoga around the world.

Yoga Activities

Understanding the need to spread deeper aspects of yoga to reduce suffering we started uploading different yoga philosophies and practices on YouTube free for all.

During Covid we couldn't have residential courses and we started online courses in August 2020. These proved very successful as they were more accessible for many people as they could study while still following work and/or family commitments. It has been a great way for students to learn more from their own homes, bringing the yogic lifestyle into their homes and impacting not only themselves but also sharing positivity to all those in their household.

We are now running online TTC courses, Yoga Therapy courses, Pre & Post Natal TTC, Yoga Psychology Courses, Childrens TTC, Advanced Pranayam TTC, YCB Level II and III courses, Yoga Nidra TTC and Meditation Teacher Training.

We are now running our residential courses with so many courses announced. Online courses will also continue for those who are not able to come to the ashram. The Yogapoint ashram is looking beautiful, and we are now having a large amount of organically grown fruits and vegetables.

Sustainable Living

What we eat is what makes our body and mind. Every cell in the body and every thought in the mind is made by the food from mother nature. If we have polluted everything from water, air, soil, seeds, leaves, vegetables, and fruits then our body and mind will also be polluted.

During covid lockdowns we decided to grow 100 % organic produce in the ashram. We neither wanted to use pesticide nor fertilizer nor GMO seeds. Instead, we acquired traditionally preserved seeds, ashram cow dung, cow urine, and some other natural leaves of trees in the ashram.

We are successfully growing a wide range of produce now including fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, beans and grains. We feel it is extremely important to continue with this and are also trying to make our ashram as sustainable as possible. We now have the majority of our energy coming from solar panels and collect water in our dam during the monsoon which keeps us going for the whole year.

Seva activities

Yogapoint has always shared what we can with the surrounding villages, in fact one of the main reasons we had to start online courses was to be able to continue to support those around us. We recently distributed bags and stationery for local school children who were very pleased. We did a huge drive for warm clothing and blankets which were distributed to many villages in the hope that they will stay warm in the winter. Plus, we have been distributing food, in particular, during festival times.

As well as our Residential and Online courses we have other Yogapoint courses which have been successfully completed internationally.
