The YogaVanam yoga Institute is dedicated to the education of yoga practitioners. Practitioners should come with the sole purpose of studying the tradition from its source. Students traveling to YogaVanam should not come with the expectation of obtaining Authorized or Certified status.


The list on this website constitutes the official record of teachers approved by the YogaVanam, which is the only authority able to authorize or certify individuals to teach the yoga method as taught by Shri S Vijay Rampal. There are no teacher training programs approved by this Institute; teachers that are listed on this website are experienced practitioners and dedicated students who have shown a considerable degree of proficiency and appreciation of Yoga in its traditional form and who continue to study regularly at YogaVanam.


Teachers are required to teach the method as it is taught by S Vijay Rampal. They should maintain a yoga room or shala to allow for daily, preferably morning, YogaVanam-style practice and should honor Saturdays and the full/new moon days as rest days.
