The goal of the Divine Yoga Institute is to promote a Yogic system of life with Yoga as a pathway to true, happy, and healthy living. Yogic training eventually prepares one for spiritual awakening, the supreme aim of human life.

We have special programs in the following areas:

Divine Yoga Institute was established by a team of qualified Yoga professionals trained in Yogic Studies at Bihar Yoga Bharati (BYB) at Bihar School of Yoga (BSY) in Munger, India. BYB is the first Yoga University of its kind in the world.

The Institute follows the BSY/BYB method of teaching, founded by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, a direct disciple of Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh.

Swami Satyananda promoted the most profound and holistic aspects of Yoga, covering body, mind, emotions, intellect, spirit and karma.  He was the first to widely popularize and spread the therapeutic effects of Yoga.
