“If yoga were to be taught in every school in the world, young people everywhere would be well adjusted, healthy and happy.”

Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

Satyam Bal Yoga Sangha

Atma Darshan has been involved in teaching Yoga to the children since its inception. In 2009 with the blessings of our Guru Swami Niranjanananda, Satyam Bala Yoga Sangha was formed in response to a need for a more formal set up for children. This idea was inspired by Bala Yoga Mitra Mandal at Munger which was started under the aegis of Swami Niranjanananda. Today there are more than 70,000 children in Munger, Bihar, learning the yogic life that is nurturing them in all aspects of character building.

There is enough scientific evidence to prove that Yoga education for children is beneficial and it has been adopted by many schools and organizations across the globe. Satyam Bal Yoga Sangha is our contribution to nurturing the future generation.

Every Sunday at 7:30 am, children between the ages of 7 to 17 years come together at Atma Darshan Yogashram to be part of the yogic journey. Children learn Asana, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Chanting, Kirtan, Havan, Art, Music, Dance, Karma Yoga, Sanskrit in a play and fun way.

These yogic techniques inculcate a sense of discipline, right attitude and appropriate behavior along with nurturing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimension of an individual personality; and help them to live a fulfilling life, contributing positively to society.

Yoga with Rural Karnataka

Atma Darshan Yogashram conducts free Yoga Shivirs (Camps) of 2 days in Rural Karnataka comprising sessions of asana and Pranayama in the mornings, and bhajan, Kirtan and satsang in the evenings.

Requirements for organizing a shivir at a location of your choice are as follows:

  • There should be a minimum of 20 persons and a maximum of 50 persons per shivir

  • There should be a hall which is large enough to accommodate the above number

  • Hospitality (accommodation & board) & local transport for two teachers who will come from Bangalore.

“Karma Yoga is not just selfless service to mankind but should also include the re-definition of your relationship with yourself.”

Sri Swami Satyananda Saraswati.

Yoga For Mental Rehabilitation

As a part of our endeavor to reach out to different sections of society, Atma Darshan Yogashram works with the Richmond Fellowship to rehabilitate persons with mental health issues. Yoga has been found to have profound effects on behavioral changes in these people. Though working with them has been challenging, it has also been immensely rewarding. Yoga teachers involved with the Richmond Fellowship have learned a lot in their interactions. Atma Darshan Yogashram is committed to work with and support mental rehabilitation through Yoga programs.

“We stand hypnotized by the belief that disease and illness are our fate and destiny rather than health and bliss which are truly our birthright and heritage.”
