The deep history of Ghosh Yoga

  • The Late Yogendra Bishnu Charan Ghosh was a yogic physical culturist, initially trained by his older brother, Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda, the renown author of “Autobiography of a Yogi”.
    • Bishnu Ghosh's system involved muscle control methods and training of body builders. He toured the world with his students in the 1930s-80s demonstrating feats of incredible physical and mental strength, including yoga posture demonstrations and the following video. Disclaimer: The following video is an exhibition and in no way a demonstration of my training or results of training with me! 
    • Ghosh's Yoga College was established in Kolkatta, India in 1923 by Bishnu Ghosh here he started a community clinic using yoga postures and movement as treatment for various physical and mental ailments.
