Yoga Vidya Dham is a Non Profit Organization (NGO) working for people by imparting Yoga Education to all sections of the society.
Established in 1979 by Yogacharya Vishwas Vasant Mandlik, Nasik and is functioning for the propagation of Yoga.
印度瑜伽知識大學(Yoga Vidya Gurukul)是印度孟買著名的瑜伽學府,專門培訓來自世界各地的瑜伽愛好者。瑜伽知識大學的課程獲得了馬哈拉斯特拉邦(Maharashtra)政府和普納大學的認可.
目前“印度瑜伽知識大學”（Yoga Vidya Gurukul）已有160個分支，遍及印度。1983年四月，在NASIK舉辦了首個瑜伽導師培訓課程，此後該課程在Yogacharya Vishwas Mandlik的有力指導下長期舉辦。“印度瑜伽知識大學” （Yoga Vidya Gurukul）已成為印度品質最好及最為活躍的其中一所瑜伽學院。今天，已有超過25萬人從瑜伽教育中受益，而志願者和導師的人數已達8500人。
“印度瑜伽知識大學”（Yoga Vidya Gurukul）唯一的目標是傳播“瑜伽和與其相關哲學”的科學。教學課程以瑜伽古典記錄中的基本原理為基礎，如帕坦嘉裏（Patanjali）的八支分法瑜伽（Ashtanga Yoga），哈他瑜伽（Hatha Yoga）之光，其他還有許多。教學的基本原則是“由易到難”。據此原則進行教導，這樣學生就會覺得學習容易，有趣，並能不需花費太大精力來迎接高級階段的練習。通過不斷研究瑜伽、調息法、冥想、淨化程式的應用以及研究志願者，學院已開發了瑜伽療法技巧，同時瑜伽教學原則的研究也改變了教學策略，更適應當代的需要和要求。該學院已成功傳達了這樣一種資訊：“瑜伽是面向普通人的，就像我們所有人一樣。它並不是只由放棄家庭生活的穴居聖人賢士才能有的。”
“印度瑜伽知識大學”（Yoga Vidya Gurukul）發展出了系統而科學的瑜伽教授方法。面對學生的不同個人水準，分為初級課程、高級課程、學位課程、學士課程和碩士課程等五個水準，學生可以通過這些課程學習瑜伽學。對於對教學有興趣的學生而言，有個分為三個階段進行的項目，包括瑜伽導師（頒授瑜伽教學資格證書）、瑜伽教育文憑，以及瑜伽教育學位。同時，瑜伽知識大學也舉辦一門“自然療法”（N.C.）的資格認證課程，以及一門自然療法文憑課程（N.D.）。為了廣為傳播瑜伽所傳達的資訊，瑜伽知識大學正在印度的各分支舉辦“瑜伽導師集訓課程”。
該大學是印度唯一已將瑜伽培訓流線化和系統化的學院。馬哈拉斯特拉邦(Maharashtra)政府已認可了所有這些課程。瑜伽知識大學提供的課程也獲得了普納大學的認可。Yogacharya Vishwas Mandlik開發的瑜伽教學八階段與帕坦嘉裏的“八支分法瑜伽”的八個步驟擁有的相似之處，讓人不能不感受到帕坦嘉裏在21世紀的存在。
