Niloufar society of yoga Lovers and Graduates was found in the 1960s by Yoga Master, Niloufar Yazdanshenas when she was in her 20s. In Persian, Niloufar means lotus.
A flower that rises above the muddy waters of attachments and blooms uncovering the purity of the body, mind, and soul via its unity with the divine. Just like the meaning of her name, Niloufar yoga institute has enlightened the hearts of its students with the virtue of her pure love, compassion, vast knowledge and experience and helped them to improve their physical and mental health.
With the great level of yoga knowledge and practical experience, Niloufar yoga has trained tens of yoga teachers who are spreading these virtues around the globe every day and help others to modify their lifestyles and obtain the positive mindset and confidence they need to be happy and successful in their lives.
Our teachers truly discovered their talents and gain the abilities to make balance between both spiritual and terrestrial aspects. They are all well-educated people in different fields of science and technology (Engineering, literature, mathematics, physics, art, etc.), as well as helping the society with their yoga skills such as Vinyasa yoga, yoga dance, and yoga for kids, etc.
Niloufar yoga believes that the real yoginis and yogis are researchers, who do the research on their own laboratories which are their bodies, minds, and souls to discover all aspects of their essence. Step by step being led through a practically Niloufari-pathway, they are able to unify these three essential elements of mind, spirit, and body. Niloufar’s faith is that the mental health is as important as physical health which all need to be regularly looked after through 8 limbs of yoga: Asana, Pranayam, Bandha, Mudra, Yamas, Niyamas, Dharana, and Dhyana. These practical techniques are educated along with the anatomic, physiologic and alignment point of view which help the students to find themselves to be self-contained and self-developed in their journey of self-exploration.
