Swami Vajrapani Saraswati founded Shiv Darshan Yoga Vidyalaya, while Swami Gambhirananda Saraswati is the managing trustee and Acharya. Both Swamis are direct disciples of Paramhamsa Swami Satyananda Saraswati and have close ties to Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati.

At the 2013 World Yoga Convention of Bihar School of Yoga in Munger, they were bestowed with the title of ‘Golden Swamiji’. Their shared goal is to realize Swami Satyananda Saraswati’s mission to “spread yoga door to door and shore to shore”. For the past 29 years, Shiv Darshan Yoga Vidyalaya has been working towards achieving this goal and continues to promote the yogic way of life to people from all walks of life.

I have participated many Webbinar classes Conducted by Shiv Darshan Yoga Vidyalaya. Each and every classes is very informative and useful to Yoga mitras and teaching through an experienced and a Knowledgeable faculty for Patanjali Yoga Sutras and Yoga Therapy . Today (16.04.23) class for Psychosomatic Diseases explained by Mr. Balamurali ji was detailed with a good example. I really satisfied with SDYV and will recommend to all Yoga Mitras for the respective courses.
