Yoga from the Source
Centre Lothlorien is affiliated with ‘The Yoga Institute’ in Mumbai, India. The Yoga Institute is founded by Shri Yogendra who was taught Yoga by a Saddhu. The Saddhu’s are the original practisers of yoga. They devote their lives to reach illumination, but live solitary lives and keep their knowledge to themselves. Shri Yogendra is the first Yogi who started a family and brought the knowledge of yoga to the public. For 100 years the Yogendra family has shared their knowledge and Centre Lothlorien is the first to offer their study program in Europe. A team of teachers who all studied at ‘the Yoga Institute’, led by Pinky More from Mumbai, will come to Centre Lothlorien in France to teach you the essence of Yoga.
