Padma Shri Sadashiv Nimbalkar

“My revered Guru Swami Kuvalayanandaji who kindled in me a love for Yoga Shastra” – Sadashiv Nimbalkar!

Padma Shri Sadashiv P. Nimbalkar was initiated to Yoga and Yogic Science at Kaivalyadhama, Mumbai in 1957 by Swami Kuvalayanandaji, a pioneer of research in Yogic Science, he was the first in India to give a scientific approach to Yoga. Association with Guru Kuvalayanandaji was a great fortune for Shri Nimbalkar as this gave him an opportunity to enlighten and enrich himself with a new vision, a scientific approach to Yogic Science. Shri Nimbalkar retired as Vice Principal of Junior College in 1984. A successful dramatist, gymnast and a sports person, Shri Nimbalkar was also deeply involved with Homeopathy and Yoga. His association with a pioneer of Yogic Science, Swami Kuvalayanandaji, changed his entire life style. He then cherished the dream of taking Yogic Science to every household and commoners for their good health and for the development of their personality. He realized that the traditional method of doing yoga was difficult. He, therefore, started specializing in Yoga Education, Homeopathy and simplified methods of Yogic Practices.

Yoga Vidya Niketan & Its Courses!

In order to make his dream true, Shri Nimbalkar founded Yoga Vidya Niketan (YVN) in 1974 with First Summer Camp. Later he designed easy-to-perform yogic courses are based on ancient principles of yoga, blended with the modern tenets of Physiology, Bio-chemistry, Health, etc. and tailor made to suit every individual’s needs. Yoga Vidya Niketan has been recognized by Govt. of Maharashtra as an Institute to do research and conduct courses for Yoga and related Allied Science. Shri Nimbalkar designed graded course for Summer Camp, Diploma in Yogic Education (Teachers’ Training Course) to bring trained Yoga Teachers and Diploma in Yogic Therapy, Natural Living and Naturopathy for Yoga Therapists & Naturopaths. The Summer camp is conducted at different Suburbs in Mumbai & Navi Mumbai and other cities in Maharashtra Dadar.

Yoga & Holistic Health Today, we see more and more people are becoming conscious of holistic health. Holistic Health, what is it? It is a concept, wherein we look out for total health rather than fragmenting it into physical, mental or spiritual health.
