The Team, Master &  The Teachers

Birth of Yoagda : All the masters & teachers at Yoagda are highly qualified  and have been learning & sharing their experience’s  in their respective fields in the Himalayas.  Considering the quality of other Yoga institutes & Ashrams in the area, the master & teachers have felt and urgent need of an institution / retreat which can give true ,  real and original  experience of this ancient Knowledge of yoga,as per the scriptures.


To fulfill this urgent need Yogada  was created  as per the true meaning of it i.e  

Yog :  the perfect combination of right time & right situation  +   Da  :  The one who gives  = Yogada


Selection of Place:

As per the scriptures,   this ancient knowledge of yoga was given by lord Shiva  to the saints in the Himalayas to elevate the human consciousness.  Shivpuri  ( The place of Shiva) was selected for Yogada as the place is described as home of Shiva in puranas ( Scriptures). One can still feel the vibrancy & energy in the area, making it most suitable for yoga practices today as well.

Yogada is backed by the Team Himalayan of Garhwal Himalayan Explorations, which is the first professional Travel & Tours Operators, since 1989 specialized in Himalayan Adventure Holidays.  Pioneers in Trekking, Rafting & Expeditions in Himalayas, Team Himalayan is still the leading Tour company in the area, handling maximum foreign tourists coming to the area.

Team Himalayan backs yogada in its full capacity and uses its 25 years’ experience to add  more value & quality to Yogada Experiences for its Guests.
