Sri Sri School of Yoga
To bring authentic yoga education to the world
To teach yoga in its purity of ancient tradition with the technical skill and pragmatic scientific approach
The Sri Sri School of Yoga is founded by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a global humanitarian and thought leader in yoga and meditation, who is fully established in the Self. Our school seeks to expand the world’s understanding of yoga through an education and training that are steeped in the vedic tradition – the original roots of yoga – and a long lineage of masters while making yoga accessible and applicable for modern day use for people of all ages, abilities, cultures and religions. Through a comprehensive and multi-dimensional science based education, our school’s programs teach about and integrate all paths of yoga including Hatha yoga (effort), Raja yoga (effortless, royal) Gyana yoga (wisdom), Karma yoga (service & action), Bhakti yoga (love & devotion) and more. The primary elements of our training are asanas (postures), pranayamas (breathing techniques), meditation and the experience and application of yoga beyond the yoga mat. Program graduates undergo our rigorous training and are equipped with a deep and personal understanding and experience of yoga that enables them to bring these different dimensions of yoga to their students. The simplicity of Gurudev’s approach to yoga combines the fundamental principles of practice (sadhana), service (seva) and devotion (satsang) – this unique approach empowers individuals to thrive and society to blossom in human values.
