Bishnu Ghosh

& The Ghosh Yoga Linage


Ghosh Yoga is a system and style of classical Hatha yoga created and taught by Bishnu Charan Ghosh.

What most distinguishes Ghosh’s system is the use of stillness during and after yoga postures (as opposed to the continuous flow found in other types of yoga) and his focus on the therapeutic culture of yoga.


A short illustration of the Ghosh Yoga lineage by Tony Sanchez:


Ghosh in the west

Ghosh Yoga first came to the west with Bikram Choudhury in the 1970s. Bikram (with his instructor Bishnu) created an asana based (instead of therapeutic based), routine that was challenging and sequenced.

Other prominent—and noteworthy— teachers of the Ghosh Yoga linage and philosophy include Tony Sanchez, Esak Garcia, and Ida and Scott Lamps.
These teachers are leaders in the Ghosh Yoga community and pioneering the system
in both modern and traditional ways.
