Its yoga masters have spent more than 90,000 hours on improving their practice of yoga postures and meditation.

The institute has trained more than 10,000 yoga teachers from USA, Canada, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Australia, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Portugal, Greece, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, and Peru.

It also guides its clients after courses are completed by giving regular workshops and online webinars for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels in yoga, Vedic astrology, meditation, and Ayurveda. Because of this, clients keep on returning to the institute and its partners. Vedansha collaborates with medical doctors and performs research in yoga and cancer in Germany.

Responsibility

The aim of this meditation practice is to encourage a deep state of concentration, that can be reached by everyone at a different pace, from 7 days even up to several years. It depends on the student's possibility of concentration, brain activity, dominance of nervous system, desire to reach the goal and fear of obstacles. If you have any troubles related to the things mentioned, please let us know and we will help to you go forward and overcome the troubles.

Vedansha teach not only Asana, they also give knowledge of yoga as a Vedic science (pranayama, meditation, mantra, Ayurveda, astrology, sadhana, yajna, yoga philosophy, yoga therapy).
