Bharat Yoga Vidya Kendra, an initiative of The Satsang Foundation was founded by Sri M to teach authentic, traditional Yoga for holistic well-being to all aspirants.

The Yoga Kendra functions under the direct guidance of Sri M who has practised Yoga from the age of eight and later has been teaching the deeper aspects of yogic philosophies to many.  With its origin in ancient India, the practice of Yoga can be traced back to over 5000 years ago. To preserve the heritage of our country, the curriculum at BYVK has been compiled by him, based on ancient yogic texts including Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā, and Haṭha Ratnāvalī.

While conducting free Yoga classes for the community in and around Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, the Kendra has also been providing awareness sessions on Yoga and free training to the students of Satsang Vidyalaya. This has enabled the children to practice the simple techniques from a very young age.  The Government of India and Ministry of AYUSH recognises Bharat Yoga Vidya Kendra as a Yoga Training Centre.

Yoga is a practice by which any human being who is earnestly interested can transform his or her life in a positive way, to start with. Yoga has a much vaster implication than just postures. It starts with the body, goes to the mind and proceeds to the spirit.
