What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient system that, with regular practice, leads both the body and mind towards a flexible, balanced condition.

How does it work?

A gradual progression of specific postures, breath control and relaxation techniques tones the body, conditions the glandular and nervous systems, steadies thought-processes, calms emotional reactivity and leads to emotional stability.

Who is it for?

Done properly, with respect and care, everyone can benefit from these simple, healthful practices.

Is Yoga a religion?

Yoga is a science. As taught at SKY,Yoga is strictly non-denominational, respecting and supporting the personal and religious beliefs of each participant.

What is SKY Foundation?

SKY is a non-profit foundation chartered in 1972 by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Since that time it has taught thousands of students a system faithful to the traditional Yoga discipline advanced by Kaivalyadhama, India's famed Yoga institution founded in 1924 by Swami Kuvalayanandaji, a pioneering exponent of the modern scientific approach to classical Yoga.

Dr. Vijayendra Pratap, a student of Swami Kuvalayanandaji, is founder/director of SKY Foundation, president of the Yoga Research Society and author of Beginning Yoga, Yoga Vision, Secrets of Hatha Vidya, and Stories Retold.
