Ghosh Tradition


Bishnu Charan Ghosh was born in Lahore, India in 1903. A bodybuilder specializing in feats of strength and muscle control, he began his yoga training at the  Ranchi School for Boys which was founded by his older brother Paramhansa Yogananda, the author of Autobiography of a Yogi and founder of the Self Realization Fellowship. In 1924, Ghosh founded Ghosh’s College of Physical Education in Calcutta, India1. Bishnu Ghosh’s best known students and successors are Buddha Bose, his son Biswanath Ghosh, Bikram Choudhury, and Tony Sanchez.

The Ghosh Hatha Yoga system is based on 84 asanas, 3 pranayama exercises, mudras, bandhas, and kriyas. Ghosh yoga has both a physical therapeutic focus and a spiritual culture. The asanas are designed to stretch, compress, and stimulate all parts of the body: muscle, bones, joints, and organs. Pranayama, mudra, and bandha are intended for more spiritual purposes.

The Ghosh Hatha Yoga system is intended to be accessible to everyone, to heal the body, reduce stress, and quiet the mind. Ghosh yoga is built on 3 principles: physical alignment, stillness, and sequence2. Physical alignment contributes to the optimal development of posture, body, and mind. The greatest benefit of a posture is attained when using correct form and effort. Postures are held between 10 to 60 seconds followed by a brief recovery period. Stillness and sequence are therapeutic to the body and mind by building bodily awareness, focus, and strength.
