Om Yoga International (OYI) is a world-class institution headquartered in Rishikesh, the global Yoga capital. The holy river Ganga is just 200 meters from the institute, and the magnificent Himalayas views all directions. 

The soothing sound of the divine river Ganga and the pleasant view of the Himalayas makes this place perfect for those who want to do yogic sadhana. 

Here, OYI teaches ancient yogic philosophies as per the teaching of our ancient saints. We believe in teaching the traditional style of Yoga as mentioned in the Vedas, which provides us "Way to successful living with  Yoga and Meditation". Unfortunately, some ignorant people misled the term "Yoga" with Asanas. We maintain the uttermost sanctity of Yoga on the principles of Vedas, Samkhya Yoga, Patanjali Yoga Sutra, and Geeta. Therefore, nobody can question and deny the significance and relevance of our syllabus.    

Our mission is to create the perfect Yoga Instructor on the principle of Indian tradition and culture. If you wish to become a Yoga Instructor with complete Yogic life experience and authentic knowledge, you are at the right place. 

Acharya Radhika Sharan and Acharyani Ruchika Sharan, who have devoted two decades to studying Vedanta, Upanishads and Geeta, have meticulously designed and supervised the Yoga training syllabus at the OYI. 

Yoga, a word originating from the Sanskrit language, has guided humanity since the beginning of this universe, with concepts of Ashtanga Yoga and Hatha Yoga written in Patanjali Yoga Darshan, Hatha Yog Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita, Siva Samhita etc. 

All ancient books say nothing is impossible with the Yogic Way of life; many words like respect, position, health, wealth, success, love, beauty, fearless, physical and mental strength, peace, and bliss emerged in our society. One can achieve everything on the planet through Yoga, which means unity. Indian Yogis had practically experienced and desired to impart their knowledge to the masses. India turned out to be the centre of expertise. It attracted many people worldwide to travel to various cities in India to get first-hand learning experiences from Yogic Gurus. India has gained its unique position in this world with the name of Yoga and has also been declared the" World Guru".

There are more than thousands of Yoga centres across India to teach Yoga. Despite that, traditional Yoga has lost its sanctity because most Yoga Instructors need to properly understand Yoga and the Sanskrit language, which is a source of Yoga philosophy. Therefore, these people have restricted the meaning of Yoga only to Asanas. Furthermore, the everyday Yoga lover only moves within Asanas. Yoga is something different, and it is a complete path. However, Asanas are just one part of Yoga, not a comprehensive way. As a result, Yoga has been restricted to the word of asanas only by untrained Yoga professionals, who are responsible for creating a pathetic image of Yoga at the global and local levels. 

At Om Yoga International, we focus on authentic Indian Traditional Yoga and the Sanskrit language and provide exact translations to non-English-speaking students. We do have translators for non-English speaking students. As a result, it makes OYI a unique place to study Yoga which is rarely available in other areas. And we have succeeded in achieving 99% results in spreading this knowledge. Our students feel this thing after they come to Om Yoga. They come with an initial idea of Yoga, but after completing the course, they understand the meaning of Traditional Yoga and its importance. And they feel happy when they leave the centre. Our Traditional Yogic concepts help them change their lives and escape stress. For more info, you can visit our page STUDENT REVIEWS

We can see that the present time has become a struggle for humans to survive because of increasing competition and desires and instability in relationships and emotions. To fulfil our wishes and be ahead in the competition race, we work day and night to achieve and become like a machine where we forget the words like happiness, joy, calmness, relaxation etc. But still, when we're unable to fulfil our desires, we feel unsatisfied. Because, in reality, there is no end to desires. Wants are unlimited, and no one can ever make their wishes fulfilled. But we never understand this, and there are keen on fulfilling them. And when unable to fulfil, we feel sad and unsatisfied. Because we get demoralised and turn hostile, our negative thinking comes under peer pressure, feeling responsible for being unable to do what we want. As a result, in a lot of stress, tension, depression and anxiety. Now, whenever you are full of stress and anxiety, unable to sleep properly, then to come out of all this, you choose another path to calm your mind. For that, we start drinking, smoking, taking drugs etc. Slowly and gradually, we become addicted to all this. The result of all this is that the person then suffers physically also. However, this path is not a permanent and correct way to escape stress. But, because we lack understanding, we cannot understand all this. So, we suffer from physical and mental illness. And hence our entire life is ruined.

With the help of Asanas and Pranayama, help the person recover from physical illness and make physically and mentally strong. And with our Yogic Philosophy, we help recover from mental illness by changing the perspective of thinking for life. It allows them to look positively at life, BE HAPPY and find natural solutions to all life's problems. And we are happy to say that we have achieved 100% results in this. Because students who come to study at our centre have experienced it and benefitted from this and have learned the" Way to successful living with Yoga and Meditation" at our centre. It is real Yoga, which teaches us the "Way to successful living with the help of Yoga and Meditation."

If you want to study real Yoga, you can join us, benefit, and spread the fundamental knowledge to others. Learning here helps you gain more confidence and apply the right and valuable expertise.
