About us

Live spiritual ॐ

Yog Temple is a center where we live spirituality and strive for the universal healing of our clients. We work at all levels and combine different health practices into a holistic overall picture.

What does Yog Temple mean?

‘Yog’ is the original expression, which has been transformed into ‘yoga’ in the West because of language difficulties.

Yog is the spiritual heritage of India, which was passed down through the ancient Vedas. It includes physical, mental and spiritual practices.

Temple is a place where spiritual practices are performed. In the meaning of Ashram, it also refers to as a place where one tries to approach its (spiritual) goal.

Our Philosophy

Nipun and Leni met in India and jointly led the Indian Yog Temple in Goa and the Himalayas. After a few years, the desire to bring the secrets of yoga to Austria was born. Therefore Yog Temple Austria opened in 2017, where yoga and alternative healing methods are practiced.

Our first focus is on yoga. Nipun, our Indian yoga teacher, will teach you in the traditional roots of this ancient way of life and show you how this can be integrated into a modern life. Nipun’s sequencing is safe and made available for all levels of yoga practitioners, whether it is your first day of practicing yoga or first day of your tenth year. Everyone will have fun ,stretching, bending and twisting on their mats.

At Yog Temple, we aim to go beyond the practice of asanas. We also share the knowledge of Ayurveda, chakra awakening and our very own experience of yoga and recovery. Like this we connect to our students on a deeper level. Yoga is truly a science of right living. It starts by bringing all body functions into perfect coordination. Yoga integrates our mental and emotional levels with the physical body and helps us to live a harmonious life.

Our second focus is on alternative healing methods. Originally the term ‘medicine’ points to the center of man, same as the stem of the word ‘meditation’. Meditation still aims for self centration. In modern medicine this approach was lost in the course of its rather short history. We still find traces of the ‘re-centering’ in the word ‘remedy’. It originates form the latin word ‘remedium’, which means ‘back-to-center’. In our healing center, we take on this approach and try to bring our clients back to the center. We can do this by using different healing methods. In summary, we can apply and combine different approaches in our retreats and individual treatments to find the best approach for each individual.

That’s us
