Bihar School of Yoga, Munger

The Bihar School of Yoga ashram was founded in 1964 by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. It’s a very old-school place that teaches a full yogic lifestyle. Satyananda Yoga incorporates traditional postures, breathing, and meditation. However, if you attend the school, you’ll find that postures are rarely practiced there. Instead, the emphasis is on work (service) and meditation. Those more interested in attending a yoga course would be better off enrolling at the offshoot Bihar Yoga Bharati institute, which is more open to foreigners.
