Welcome to Patanjali Centre for Classical Yoga
The Patanjali Yoga Centre was founded by Sri Swami Indrananda Ji (Sri Indar Nath) in 1972 with a view to spreading the true message of Yoga in Great Britain and abroad. It was registered with the Charity Commission in 1982.
Aims and Objectives
Its aims are to advance public education in the classical teachings of the science of Yoga upon the principles of the highest standards of personal conduct and service to others.
To promote and advance for the public benefit the study and practice of and research into the therapeutic effects of Yoga as a means of improving the physical, mental and spiritual health of the community, and to publish useful results of any such research.
In 1988 an Ashram was established in Battle, East Sussex to impart the classical teachings of Yoga to serious aspirants and others. The Centre is now run by Devotees and Trustees, together with our Programme Director Brahmananda. Brahmanandaj is the son of the late Lachuji Bharwaney who was one of the first Trustees of the Centre and was a very close friend and confidant of Swami Indranandaji.
Sannyasi Brahmananda was initiated into karma sannyasa by Parmahamsa Satyananda in 1988, in Munger, India. In the years since that day he has returned to the ashrams in Munger and Rikhia many times, to deepen his studies and experience, attend programmes and immerse himself in karma yoga and seva. He spent many years as director and course coordinator of the Satyananda Yoga Academy Europe.
