What is
21st Century Yoga?

21st CENTURY YOGA is our term to describe learning the ancient science of Yoga virtually! 

With our digital shala, you can do your ABHYASA (daily Yoga & Meditation course) or dive deep into Philosophy, Anatomy, Chakras & more with the BEYOND ASANA course. Other courses include Teacher Training and In-Person Retreats in the Himalayas and beyond!

Manish Pole designs new courses monthly that cater to the modern seeker. Shot by Sumeru Bahuguna at spectacular locales, they allow you to immerse into nature.     


‘JANNAT’ or Heaven is how every traveler has described Kashmir for millennia – and it sure lives up to the reputation!

Snowy Mountains, lush flower-filled Meadows and dreamy turquoise Lakes create an unbelievable palette of colours making the Kashmir Great Lakes trek the most beautiful trail in India, and much of the world!

A treat for the eyes and soul of any weary traveler, the m.u.s.a.f.i.r. experience combines this otherworldly Himalayan beauty with inward-seeking Mindfulness & Yoga practices.
