**VYS = Vanakkam Yoga School

Master Sudhakar

Born in the spiritually renowned temple city of Kancheepuram, South India, Sudhakar was blessed to have started practicing yoga at the young age of 11.

Sudhakar quickly embraced the wise teachings and spiritual education from his first guru Swami Chandrananda. He completed his teacher training at the International Sivananda Yoga Centre at the age of 15. As the youngest graduate, Sudhakar was notably awarded ‘Yoga Sharomani’, or ‘Best Teacher’ award.

In 2001, Sudhakar returned to Sivananda, in Kerala, to advance his teaching techniques. His talents as a teacher trainer, his innovative teaching style and commitment to his students, earned him the title, ‘Yoga Yogacharya’, meaning ‘Master of Yoga’.

Sudhakar is one of the few yoga masters who could guide younger children to elderly or disabled people in yoga practice because of his long and wide range of achievement and has become highly reliable and hugely popular.

And now, he has created the Vanakkam Yoga School where anyone can learn the essence of yoga. He has visited Japan quite often over the last few years and spent his time to convey the origin of yoga to students in the Asia region and he’s just like a mobile ashram (a place for striving towards a yogic goal).

All workshops and teacher training courses are packed full of students every time. An ashram will be opened on June 21st, 2018 at Shibuya-ku. We are really looking forward to seeing you there, which is the only chance in a life-time to experience the original essence of yoga!

【What is 621 Yoga matsuri?】 
June 21st is “International Day of Yoga (Yoga Day)”.
India is the place where its origin of yoga and the current Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi suggested the date of June 21st as a yoga day. This Yoga Day was declared by the United Nations in 2015. Since then, some big yoga events have been held internationally.

We, students of Vanakkam Yoga School with Master Sudhakar, had a first “621 Yoga matsuri” in June 21st 2016 at Nihonbashikabutocho. Totally around 3000 people participated in our second event at Asakusabashi in 2017.

Yoga, which has about 5000 years history in India, is the accumulated wisdom of the ages to keep body and mind healthy and live with smile calmly. Master Sudhakar is one of a few Yogacharya (meaning “Master of Yoga”) who is able to teach us the unchanged nature of Yoga appears on the stage.

Master Sudhakar gives a chance not only to practice yoga asanas physically but to communicate with inner yourself. What you get from 90 min yoga practice on your mat would positively affects all the aspect of your daily life. You can feel the difference.
By offering this opportunity with no charge in order to experience the origin of yoga that is difficult to encounter even in highly information society Japan, we sincerely hope the more people could make full use of yoga to daily life and spend richly comfortable life. This would lead us to more peaceful and beautifully harmonized society.

“Matsuri” literally means a festival but this is dedication.This is time to dedicate the effectiveness of yoga, which has come down from ancient India as sacred wisdom, to as many people as possible in this modern Japan.

〜A Gift From Yoga〜

You could experience the effectiveness of yoga you haven’t realized yet for free at “VYS621 Yoga matsuri”.

We are really looking forward to meeting you there!
