About Vinyasa Yoga Academy
At VYA our goal is to provide Seekers with unique spiritual, religious, and mind/body experiences by applying our expertise in Vedanta philosophy, and yoga. We are a young, ambitious and modern-day ashram that differentiates itself from others by offering not just practices, but also understanding, context, meaning, and relevance of what we teach. The product we provide must also be the result you require, and when your program concludes, it is our hope that you leave with a full mystical comprehension of your practical experience.
Vinyasa literally means "connection" and Vinyasa yoga is the practice of breath-synchronized movements. The flow is composed of a series of yoga poses where the yogi moves with the power of breathing. Practicing Vinyasa allows students to feel as if they are dancing with an intent to enter the inner dimension of one's being.
Our academy guides students toward self empowerment and transformation while they deepen their own practice so they may learn the art of teaching others. The programs are well designed to support students as they reach inside themselves and share their unique qualities with the world. Understanding the history of the yoga traditions of the Himalayas will better establish the philosophy of one's own life and with this knowledge it is easier to meet all of life's challenges in the modern world. At VYA we believe that by providing a supportive community, a peaceful environment and expert knowledge and our well rounded curriculum along with fun getaways and adventures lay a foundation for learning the culture of India and the practice of yoga.

Reviews & Testimonials
Life changing experience! I have traveled the world over my 58 years on this earth and never experienced this deep, thought provoking guidance. I just wanted to improve my yoga practice. I came knowing NOTHING but I wanted to do correct poses. As I stated, I am 58 years young and only tried yoga a year ago with DVDs and you tube. I recommend this specific school because their is something amazing going on here up in the lush beautiful green hills of Rishikesh, India. Your mind is the only thing holding you back. I found Vinyasa Yoga Academy online while searching for schools. I was drawn to this school and a year later was blessed to come learn not only physical yoga but SO MUCH MORE. I believe, never in the states could I have had this experience for 1/3 the cost AND included room and board and the best weekly outings on our day off.
I was looking for a yoga school to go on Rishikesh, after many research I like their reviews and decide to go to Vinyasana Yoga Academy in the end of the year. But de pandemia cames and this plan was over. One day I get to the site to see the class for the next year, and for my surprise they have now online course. Truly it was one of the best choices I had ever made! The teacher have many many knowledge, always answered our questions, explaining the smal details af each asana, the books were incredible with all information and details that I needed. I recomend this online course for anyone who wants to start or go deeper on your journey as yoga teacher, because after doing this I fell that the knowledge is something that I will pass all my life learning and evolving on it! Namaste to all my teachers, and I can't wait for the 300h course!
