Our Roots

Jeevana Yoga Pratisthana ® is an international non-profit, non-denominational, and educational, yoga and humanitarian organization, which addresses all aspects of human well-being.

Founded by Acharya Arun Prakash in 2011, and registered in 2013 under the Indian Trust Act, Jeevana yoga has been successfully registered under Indian Income Tax 80G exemption.

It is an entirely volunteer-run, international non-profit organization dedicated to serving people and creating world peace through Yoga and allied lifestyle sciences of India. At Jeevana yoga, activities are designed to create an inclusive culture that is the basis for global harmony and progress. This approach has gained worldwide recognition.

Jeevana Yoga offers a platform to explore yoga and other ancient Indian lifestyle sciences. Under a unified umbrella, it will allow people to explore the various aspects of yoga, including the history and origins of Yoga, developing a practice based on Hata Jeevana Vinyasa and an opportunity to learn Sanskrit. The allied activities of the organization include documenting Yoga texts and allied ancient Indian life style sciences. It aims to create a platform to study authentic traditional sciences under one umbrella.


    Jeevana Yoga is about holistic living, taking into account every aspect of life, starting from breath and movement to deep spiritual awareness, complete fitness, and optimal use of our every sense, indeed, of every cell in our brain and body. Jeeva, the soul which resides in the body can control spirit with the help of Yoga. Pranadharana i.e., grounding the soul in the body with help of healthy process of respiration is called Jeevana.

    While classical yoga is more of a way of life, an ideal state of “being” which might not apply completely to the ubiquitous fast-lane living of today, there exists a need to possess a body in-tune with one’s spirit to cope with the demands of the modern lifestyle. Recognising this requisite of human society, “Jeevana Yoga” was founded—a contemporary execution of ancient science.

    Jeevanyoga is based on the philosophy that ecstatic living is key. A sound body and a sound mind is considered to be integral and hence, Jeevan Yoga aims to help ground your soul in your body—thus diminishing purposeless drift by encouraging a deeper consciousness of self and sensitivity to the senses of the body.

    So, with Jeevana Vinyasa, holistic Classical Hata practice, Jeevan Yoga aims to stimulate and nurture a much needed life of sublime ecstasy.


    Jeevana Vinyasa is a revolutionary Yoga offering by Acharya Arun Prakash. It takes a 360 degree approach to modern life style and its complications. Its unique combination of the spontaneous intensity of Classical Hata yoga and therapeutic moves aims to cure lifestyle disorders, holistically promoting fitness, health and spiritual advancement. The approach is unique in combining Sagarbha -Antar Trataka along with powerful spontaneous meditative moves. It believes in creating natural internal props, in order to boost natural and emotional intelligence and unlock the hidden potential of the self. Hata Jeevana Vinyasa is unique in that it takes into account seasonal, regional and individual requirements. The practice is structured with care and modified regularly.
