Shri Yogendra Museum of Classical Yoga is the world's first museum established on the theme of Yoga. Shri Yogendra Museum of Classical Yoga was inaugurated in 1987 at The Yoga Institute, by the then President of India, Shri Giani Zail Singh. Conceptualized to show Yoga as a way of life, it provides guidelines for all those who are interested in studying classical Yoga.
The museum presents a historical and balanced view of Yoga, which is a necessity amidst the confusion that has spawned in Yoga activities in India and abroad.
With an array of indoor and outdoor displays, the museum contains the History of Yoga, sections on Raja Yoga (with special reference to Patanjali Yoga Sutra), Bhakti Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Kriyas, ancient versus modern structure of Asanas (specially elaborated – through a long and patient study of the Asana structure of The Yoga Institute).
The works of The Yoga Institute and the teachings of the Founder, Shri Yogendraji, has also been preserved in the Crypt of Civilization. The Crypt is one of the greatest historical projects conceived by Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, then President of the Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, Georgia.
