Satyananda Yoga Centre has been a pioneer in introducing yoga in education! We have taken numerous efforts in the last fifteen years to bring the wisdom of yoga into the education stream. We had the opportunities to make lakhs of children look up to YOGA with hope and joy!

Through several initiatives, in collaboration with private educational institutions and with government run educational institutions, almost a lakh and fifteen thousand children have been introduced to yoga in an enjoyable manner, during the decade of 2005 to 2014!

We were able to let children have an enjoyable experience of Yoga and come to the conclusion that, “YOGA is FUN!”

One may be a great practitioner of asanas, or capable of demonstrating the most complex and advanced asanas! One may be able to explain all the scientific facts behind every practice. These things cannot hold the child even for a moment to consider YOGA as FUN!

Teaching Yoga to children and teaching yoga to adults are completely different things and require totally different skill and knowledge sets! We have trained twenty teachers in handling yoga classes for children in the most interesting manner.
