With the intention of continuing the work of Paramahamsa Satyananda and to concretize the vision of Swami Shivananda Saraswati of Rishikesh, the institution consists of three faculties : philosophy of Yoga, psychology of Yoga and applied Yoga. The Bihar Yoga Bharati offers students hailing from different backgrounds a comprehensive and thorough education in Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and other associated disciplines.
The objective is to link academic study with the atmosphere of ashram life. On a subtle level, the students absorb yogic qualities of seva-selfless service, samarpan-devotion, and karuna-compassion. Each year, courses of four months are scheduled for everyone in English and in Hindi.
The Ganga Darshan campus, situated on a hill overlooking the Ganges, offers an exceptional setting and auspicious atmosphere for spiritual development and is considered to be a spiritual oasis for the XXI century.
