Bihar School of Yoga (BSY) was established in 1964 as the headquarters of International Yoga Fellowship. It aims to impart yogic training to householders and sannyasins alike. Since the first Yoga Teacher Training Courses which was held in 1968, the school has grown into a reputable International Training center of great renown.
The yoga School is situated at Ganga Darshan, which is built over a large hill overlooking the Utter vahini Ganga. Here, amidst an atmosphere of natural beauty, surrounding by scenic gardens,, green paddy fields and a majestic 180 degree panoramic sweep of the river Ganga, a new vision of yogic life is inspired.
The techniques of integral Yoga taught here are a synthesis of all approaches to personal development. Yoga Teachers Training, Yoga Health Management, Individual Sadhana, Hriya Yoga, Mantra Meditation and other advance courses are conducted by trained sannyasins on a group or individual basis for day and life residential students.
The Bihar School of Yoga has always been known for its excellent sannyasa training and was one of the first institutions to initiate and train female and overseas sannyasins on a large scale.
The institution houses a well-stocked Yoga Research Library with a large collection of books and data where most of the school’s publication of Yoga, health techniques and research are compiled. Ashram graphics, the modern printing press, prints all the BSY publications. It has a wide range of equipment’s and is staffed and managed by the sannyasins and disciples of the ashram who do everything from typesetting to dispatch.
Conventions, tours, seminars, workshops and lectures help spread the yogic message “from door to door and from shore to shore”. In addition to these, trained sannyasins are ever ready to conduct organized conventions, seminars and lecture tours throughout all the India and the world. This provides a solutions for the Yoga minded people who find it impossible to undertake a journey to Munger or any of the branch ashrams.
