On the glorious completion of 94 years of The Yoga Institute, Smt. Hansaji Jayadeva Yogendra, Director of The Yoga Institute, said, “As Patañjali, the compiler of the Yoga Sūtras, emphasizes on control of the mind which is done on the intellectual as well as emotional level, we want to help each individual in the world to feel true relaxation of body and mind and learn how simple Yoga practices help to gain clarity of mind and strength of character.”
The Yoga Institute in Mumbai till date has successfully helped more than ten million people over three generations through more than a hundred thousand programmes. The institute with the approach to propagate the message of Yoga to householders has aimed at training students with the modules on better living facilitated by experts to accelerate social well being.
