Would you like to organize Yoga Workshops yourself?

Private Yoga Lessons


When travelling, Yashendu also gives individual yoga classes to students as well as yoga teachers who would like to understand a certain part of yoga better or would like to strengthen particularly their weak points of practice. Individual attention on precisely those points where you can improve your yoga poses, where you can go deeper into the yoga posture and where you can have the better effect of the Asana that you are doing. An individual class is perfect for those who feel that a workshop does not focus enough on their personal needs.

Private yoga classes can be scheduled with the organizers of all places where Yashendu gives program. For the contact details for your town, please check the schedule.

Of course Yashendu also offers private yoga lessons at the Ashram in Vrindavan whenever he is there. For scheduling sessions in India, please contact Ramona:

About Yoga - Unity

The Sanskrit word 'Yoga' literally translates to 'unity' and this is the essence and aim of this ancient science: uniting your soul with the one big soul which is called God, the universe and has many more names. Yoga helps you to reach this goal of being one with this energy. You get to know your body, mind and soul and thus reach a new balance in your life which is then filled with happiness and joy. Yoga has changed many lives, let it change yours, too!

Benefits of Yoga

Physical Health and Fitness through Yoga Poses

It is known as a fact that yoga strengthens the body and gives it much more flexibility. There is an enourmous variety of Asanas (different yoga positions) which stretch, bend and flex each muscle of your body and of course cover all levels of experience. It is wrong to think that you have to be flexible to do yoga - everybody can! There are yoga positions for beginners as well as for experts and there it is never the wrong time to make a beginning. You will soon feel how you get more energy, are more flexible and strong.

Yoga helps to ease pain in joints and muscles and to relief tension as well as it improves the respiratory system and support digestion and intestines. There are yoga postures for each part of the body whether it is the back, your neck, your joints, your belly or your feet. It is for the whole body. And of course you can practice yoga for weight loss with exercises concentrating especially on those areas where you feel you have extra fat. Practicing yoga is thus just wonderful for your health and fitness.

Mental and Emotional Health and Well-Being

Although Yoga is known mostly for its benefits on physical health, that is only a part of this science. Another part is the work and effect that it has on mind and emotions. The regular practice of yoga exercises, Pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation has a very relaxing and calming effect on the mind and it balances the emotions in the body as there is a time in which everything can come to peace. Meditation is additionally proven to enhance concentration and focus which helps us think faster and in more flexible ways. Yoga as a whole is considered therapeutic as it doesn't only offer treatment through exercise to the body but can also heal mental disorders and improve conditions like depression or bipolar as it gives stability and balance.

Yoga makes you aware of your body, it makes you feel it and improves your posture, your patterns of movement and along with this all also your self-esteem. It is thus help and support in everday's hectic and stress and it brings you into balance - you as a whole being.
