Anahata (Heart) Chakra is the centre of compassion which awakens through yoga. This logo is the chosen symbol for Mandala Yoga Ashram as we feel it to be the most important quality needed in the present era.
Mandala Yoga Ashram was founded in July 1986 by Swami Nishchalananda Saraswati to teach and propagate classical yoga to all people without consideration of class, religion, race or gender. It was inspired by his Guru (preceptor), Swami Satyananda Saraswati.
The ashram provides an ideal place to learn and practise yoga and is dedicated to helping yogic practitioners to go deeper in their practice, self-awareness, inner transformation and realisation of their place in the universe. Yoga is an invaluable practical tool, philosophical system and way of life for bringing peace, meaning, wisdom and joy into our lives. In this way, the ashram offers a positive contribution to improving the quality of life for the individual, family and society.
Mandala Yoga Ashram is an independent charitable institution with close links with the Bihar School of Yoga and the British Wheel of Yoga. The ashram is open to all and gives courses on a wide range of Yoga related subjects.
The spiritual head of the ashram is Swami Nishchalananda.
The ashram emphasises the importance of awakening feminine qualities such as intuition, caring, unconditional love and compassion, qualities which are so important in the world in which we live.
