Our Story

Amara Vidya is “Universal Knowledge”, or “Scientific Consciousness”. We run programs that supports a participant’s own journey, crafting their own exploration in an accessible, diverse, and sustainable way.

Our 9 Stone, 3 Pillar Philosophy

Welcome to the Amara Vidya Yoga School. This framework is original, blending Eastern and Western framework into a 9 stone philosophy and 3 pillar methodology that can be applied to ANY style. Whether you practice Ashtanga, Hatha, Kripalu or Hot yoga, the Amara Vidya approach is available to you. What sets us apart is we look at learning outcomes provided to people of all abilities. We support how a teacher develops their OWN style, and what they wish to share with the world.

We have a mission to change how yoga teaching is currently taught. We seek to build a community of graduates who are strong in working with global and local organziations of service.
