OUR DIRECTORS MESSAGE
Welcome to Adiveda Research Institute of Yoga Science and Naturopathy to experience true
knowledge of yoga Science.
There are several learning techniques to equip people to learn yoga. However, the depth of yoga science is beyond the excessive speed of modern man. Short term courses in yoga emphasis only on physical exercises which is totally contradictory to the fact that yoga aims to realise one’s body and mind and achieve effective control over them. It s essential to have a study option to fulfil such in depth knowledge in yoga and Adiveda Research Institute creates this opportunity for the modern world. I wish you all success in your aims to enlighten your life through learning yoga.
Siji Girija Soman
Our Secretary's Message
Yoga is one of the precious gift that is given to the world which is originated in India. The beginnings of the yoga were developed by the Indus- Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000years ago. Aside from the physical benefits, yoga helps a person to realize his or her own inner self and helps a person to control over his mind and spirit. The scope of yoga is growing day by day and the need for passing the knowledge in yoga science to the new generation is also increasing. Adiveda Research Institute of yoga science and Naturopathy intends to take over this mission of spreading yoga worldwide. We welcome everyone to experience and learn the true essence of yoga science from Adiveda.
