Welcome to Anadi yoga centre, Rishikesh, India!

We are a Yoga school and retreat centre located in Rishikesh, India, tucked away in the foothills of the Himalayas. Here at Anadi Yoga Centre, we offer the chance to practice, study and live the full Yoga lifestyle, all while soaking up the rich and spiritual culture of an ancient city that is known as the 'Yoga Capital of the World.' We are dedicated to Yoga as a lifestyle and to providing all of our students with an authentic and enriching environment to study and dive deeper into their own spiritual path. Our name ‘Anadi’ is an ancient Indian Sanskrit word meaning ‘eternal’, where there is no beginning and no end. This word is used when describing the soul or pure consciousness, from which everything in our universe has come to be. Yoga is all about the journey from yourself to yourself and your pure consciousness, and this is why the word ‘Anadi’ was chosen for our school. Before we introduce ourselves, it is perhaps best to first explain what yoga means to us.

Historically, the knowledge of Vedas (ancient Indian scriptures) was taught orally and with time while scripts were written to pass down this treasure to future generations, much of it remained encrypted and inaccessible to the common man.

The great sage Patanjali succinctly encapsulated the wisdom of yoga in his 197 yoga sutras and many modern day translations of his works have today allowed people to understand the nuances and intricacies of the theory of yoga. However, it has been observed that there were crucial details and concepts which Patanjali presumably expected us to already know before studying his enriching yet compendious ‘Sutras’.

Following Patanjali, many sages such as Vayasa, Vicaspati Misra (in 15th Century), Sankara (in 17th century), Ramananda Saraswati and Hariharananda Aranya wrote about the science, art and philosophy of yoga. The knowledge of yoga was thus preserved and even propelled through centuries. Later Swami Vivekanada and Yogananda dedicated their life to the resurgence of yoga. In fact, they introduced yoga and its significance for those seeking spiritual bliss in the West in early 1900s.

Yoga has existed for more than 700 years and has found its place and relevance even today despite so much of this ancient practice being lost in time and translation.Today, millions across the globe practice and study yoga. However, unfortunately yoga in most parts of the world has been relegated to only asana practice. Indeed, the physical health benefits of yoga have been scientifically proven to be beneficial. However, true seekers will realize that a steady dedicated practice leads to not just an invigorated body but also an awakened and calm mind. At Anadi, we respectfully bow to our ancestors and have devoted our lives to studying yoga.

Our Vision ‘Uttishat Jagrat Prapya Varranibodhat’ translates as ‘ Arise, awake…get enlightened from the realized one.’ We are dedicated to uncovering and extricating the lost fragments of yoga with our Abhayasa (discipline) and saadhna (practice). After being associated with yoga for numerous years, this team came together to initiate a place for studying yoga and continuing our relentless endeavor to help students from world over to collectively continue its legacy.

Yoga enables one to optimize their body, mind and soul so that he or she may connect to his or her true self, the innate honest essence which transcends and connects to the supreme source and all other living beings in existence. Yoga helps experience and realize the unbound life force that manifests itself in all living forms as an extension of the unbound supreme energy.

Our teachers share the philosophy of Anadi to teach with passion, compassion and devotion. Each teacher brings in their unique style, creativity and genuineness to an ever evolving platform of Anadi with a focus on theory of yoga, principles of alignment, infusing traditional approach with new innovative methods and a keen eye for detail. We are committed to providing our students with an insight to the scientific and wholesome experience and expect the same discipline and diligence from them.

  • Yoga philosophy

    “Yoga” or ‘Yog” is a way of living a healthy life or it can be described as the science of healthy and happy life. From ages, a good health and a balanced mind have always been very much desired things. Great saints and thinkers have given deep and correct definition of “Health” so that people of this globe can get good health in true sense rather than just being limited to physical and mantle level. Actually “health” means “right balance” or “Right orchestration of all the essential elements of your life. If even one element of your life is not in correct orchestration with rest of the elements then there happens “pain”. This is the cause of suffering. We all live as an individual and there is a constant conflict between an “individual and universal”, “inward and outward”, “we and they”, “I and this”. Great saints and thinkers from India meditated deep upon the root of suffering. They realised that the resolve, remedy or solution is within each of us. This is how “Yoga” or “Yog” came into picture. Those great saints provided a complete solution of problems of our life by addressing all the areas of the spectrum of the life not just physical but psychological, social and spiritual also. So, “Yoga” is not just about physical Asanas but it is more than that. Actually “Yoga” addresses everything in us in a holistic and complete way. So in “yoga” practice we learn…

    1: How we should live in the family or society.
    2: How we should correct ourselves inwardly or how to get rid of inward negativity.
    3: How to balance essential energies of our life.
    4: Correct knowledge or our true “Self”.

    “Philosophy” means to understand the science, to understand the hidden or subtle which cannot be brought for practical by our senses. It is to see beyond our senses. If we understand the science then we are not deceived by the happening and have better control physically and psychologically. We know the object thoroughly so we can use it intelligently. If we know the theory/philosophy then we can do the practical in much better way because now we know it in all possible perspectives. That is why need of “Yoga Philosophy” comes into picture.

  • Anatomy – physiology and psychology of yoga practices

    Yoga is a tool for uniting the mind and body, and it is important to know the inner workings of the body to understand the impact of asanas. When one does asanas with correct alignment and anatomical awareness, it becomes easier to achieve the full benefits of pranayama.

    Knowing the anatomy and physiology of the body is an added benefit if you are a yogi or in training to become a yoga instructor. It is important to know which muscles and bones can sustain which type of injuries, which asana targets which muscle compartments and which poses can help different injuries or restrictions in your own body and for your students.

    Having this kind of knowledge and body awareness will not only help improve you asana practice, but will help synchronize the breath and mind to decrease stress and improve mental health.

    The psychological benefits of yoga are great for everyone. Yoga can help with emotional healing as well as resolving issues with self-confidence, relationships and more. The practice of yoga helps us work with the nature of the mind, the nature of being human, how emotions live in our bodies and how they affect our behaviours and our mind.

    At Anadi Yoga Centre, we cover all of these subjects in our courses and more. We want our students to leave feeling confident and knowledgeable in not only asana practice, but all aspects of yoga.

  • Asana sessions of HATHA and ASHTANGA yoga
    About Hatha Yoga “Hath” is a Sanskrit language word. Literal meaning of “Hath” or “Hatha” is “forcibly” or "stubbornness ". “Hath” is made up of two letters “Ha” and “Th” of Sanskrit language. “Ha” means “Sun” or “Prana” energy and “Th” means “Moon” or “Apana” energy. Meaning of “Hath” in Yog context is right balance of “Sun” and “Moon” energy in the body or right balance of “Prana” energy and “Apana” energy in the body. “Hath” Yog is more about physical body purification, Aasanas, Pranayaam and Meditation.

    About Ashtanga Yoga Literal meaning of “Ashtanga” is eight limbs, “Ashtanga Yoga” is “Raj Yoga”. Its actual meaning is having self realization following eight steps or going through eight steps. It is called “Raj Yog" because it’s the king of the Yog in respect that it does not need much outer efforts and the path to self realization is quick and safe. It is more about having self realization through mantle discipline and meditation techniques. These eight steps are Yama (outward discipline), Niyama (inward discipline), Aasana (stable and comfortable sitting posture), Pranayama (settling down of breath energy),Pratyahara (directing senses inwardly), Dharana (efforts on focusing on a single point), Dhyaan (meditation), and Samadhi (oneness with the object). There are several flavors of Ashtanga taught in the Yoga school.
  • Pranayama
    As fifth limb of Yoga, “Pranayama” is very important part of “Yoga” practice. According to Rishi Patanjali “Pranayama” is – “Slowing of the unregulated movements of inhalation and exhalation by means of extension and expansion of breath” (2-49). Here at “Anadi Yoga Centre”, we pay special attention on the practice of “Pranayama”. We very much understand that the energy of “Mind” can never be disciplined without disciplining the energy of “Praan” - that is the very traditional concept. A lot of researchers have found that “Pranayama” techniques are beneficial in treating a wide range of stress related disorders and other mental and physical illnesses also. With all the precautions in this traditional practice, we orchestrate this wonderful limb of “Yoga” according to the need of common person.
  • Meditation sessions
    “Meditation” is a very deep science and also very-very delicate procedure. We, at “Anadi Yoga Centre” take special care of educating our students about different techniques of “Meditation”. Traditionally, “To focus the mind on a single object of meditation” – is “Dharana”. This is 6th limb of “Yoga” practice. When this concentration of the mind is without any distraction or deviation then this is called “Meditation”. “Meditation” is 7th limb of “Yoga” which when matures at higher stages, becomes “Samadhi”. “Samadhi” is the 8th limb of “Yoga”.

Aarti is a pleasant ritual of worshipping Mother Ganga

Witnessing the spectacle of Ganga evening Aarti is a blissful experience. The melody of ringing bells and the sparkling Ganga River due to the brightly lighted lamps culminates to form a unforgettable experience. The enchanted devotees offering their prayers to the holy river adds a lot of exuberance to the whole set up. Ganga Aarti at Parmarth Niketan is organized and performed by ashram residents, particularly the children (students) who are studying the Vedas there. The ceremony commences with the singing of bhajans, prayers, and a purifying and sacred ritual that takes place around a fire, with the offerings made to Agni, the fire god. The lamps are lit and the aarti takes place as the final part of the ceremony. The children sing along with the spiritual head of the ashram, in sweet, haunting voices. A huge statue of Lord Shiva overlooks the proceedings.
