Located in the Indian Himalayas

Anjanisain, Uttarakhand, India

I am happy to announce ARIYA YOGA SCHOOL (AYS), a teacher training dedicated to the preservation of the teachings of Patanjali and the Buddha. After over 13 years of teaching, I have found that there is a decline in the quality of yoga teachers and education, and a separation of meditation from yoga. This has really inspired me to want to create this opportunity for serious practitioners – those who wish to understand how to walk the path of Yoga and become meditators who are guardians of the teachings. AYS will delve into how we can become an ariya, or noble one – one who practices, embodies, and shares the classical and integral teachings of Yoga by their living example though alignment of thought, speech and action. This teacher training is for those who have a serious intention, dedication and practice, and are seeking truly the way of service and liberation through the 8 limbs and 8 fold noble path in this modern world.


Study in the Land of the Gods: We have the great pleasure of studying in the Dev Bhumi, or the Land of the Gods. Traditionally this part of the Garhwal Himalayas is well known for its Shakti Peethas, or strongholds of the Goddess. Also well known are the stories of the rishis and sages who have enhanced the vibration of the land with their tapasya, or spiritual austerities. It is an ideal and blessed place for one to walk the very first steps towards becoming a beacon of Yoga.

  • Daily Asana, Breathing, Relaxation, and Meditation Practice
