The Philosophy

YOGDAN is a concept of Yoga and Dance in confluence. It strives to enjoin the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. In this quest for Oneness, YOGDAN is a platform for a natural, harmonious and seamless flow of energy innate in movements of Yoga and Dance.

Like twin facets of a grand plan, Dance is a tool of Expression using movement while Yoga is a tool for introspection through movement. Engrossing in this experience not only brings an individual at peace with themselves but also allows their consciousness to achieve a state of elevated awareness and perception.

Participating in the YOGDAN experience is a journey of self-discovery. Explore the reaches of love, peace and harmony that Yoga and Dance together can offer.

Welcome to YOGDAN! We are situated in a residential Gurukul Ashram where you will free your mind and open yourself to the experience of Bhagwan (God).

Bh-a-g-wa-n

BH stands for Bhoomi, meaning the Earth the resident inertia in a human being
A stands for Agni, the Fire that is burning within to fulfil one’s goal
Ga is Gagan the Space that we have within us and what we fill
Wa is Wayu, meaning Air the freedom that exists in the mind
