We have set out our purpose for 2025:

To create opportunities for people to live their best life through yoga 


And we have developed our vision for 2025:

To be a platform for innovative programs and projects benefitting communities through yoga principles and practices for a purposeful, peaceful life 


Our intention for the next five years

The Academy of Yoga Science (the Academy) was established to chart a new course for the future focussed on facilitating the development of community programs aligned to the principles of yoga for the benefit of the community at large.

Yoga courses and activities previously operated at Mangrove Ashram by the now defunct organisation, Satyananda Ashram, were discontinued and the Mangrove Ashram facility itself has been sold.  

The Academy is committed to upholding the highest standards of governance and transparency. 

We are guided by a small, highly experienced committee which donates its services to the Academy.


To meet our purpose and realise our vision, we aim to:

  • Create a flat structure which is flexible and responsive 

  • Engage with programs based on yoga science

  • Create a space where people come together to share information, research and support

  • Promote yoga practice and service for community groups and individuals

  • Enable sustainable use of resources from an extensive yoga legacy, for example online network resources and program support with community input

  • Connect members in a new forum

  • Involve the wider yoga community and attract new interest in yoga science

  • Invest to resource a grant program
