MATSYA YOGA ACADEMY VIENNA
Our academy was founded with the desire to support every individual in unfolding their best self. Yoga is meant to uplift and enrich us, enabling us to face today's challenges—social, ecological, and spiritual.
We offer courses and workshops of the highest quality. Hence, our school bears the WienCert badge, making it one of the few recognized educational institutions in Austria dedicated to Yoga. Our facility undergoes regular external reviews to ensure our high standards.
Subsidized Yoga Training
Thanks to our WienCert badge, our Yoga teacher training programs are eligible for funding through WAFF for employees as well as at the AMS for further education and educational leave (Bildungskarenz).
Trainings, Workshops, and Courses
Our academy offers daily classes and Yoga courses in German and English, as well as comprehensive YOGA ALLIANCE certified Yoga teacher training programs and workshops in Vienna. Our Yoga courses are suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners of Yoga.
This world needs yoga, because it needs a way to connect with the heart and find a path to a better life. Especially in challenging times like ours, yoga must serve the lives of all of us, to advance the evolution of our being, individually and as a community.
We have made a conscious decision to have the COURAGE to believe in this evolution towards a better life. We encourage everyone to join us, to develop a vision for a better future, and to make it a reality with the power of yoga, for all of us.
We believe that wisdom should precede knowledge. Today, many believe that raw knowledge is the most important instrument in life. But what is knowledge without the insight into how it serves life? What is raw power without an application in the service of the soul?
Yoga is a path to this wisdom. The necessary complement to raw knowledge. This path leads inward to the visionary space of the heart, from which knowledge of the right way of life can emerge.
Our academy seeks to unveil this wisdom that gives meaning to all things, yoga is our path to it, the heart its seat.
We discover these treasures of yoga always from the perspective of the present. The challenges of the present, ecological, social, and also spiritual, are the benchmark from which we distill the knowledge that is relevant to us here and now.
The philosophy and practice of yoga and tantra is a source of invaluable insight, with unparalleled depth of understanding. This philosophy should inspire us to find the right actions for the present.
Yoga is not a dusty philosophy of the past, but yoga is a gift of wisdom for the now, here and today.
We teach traditional Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga according to Swami Satyananda Saraswati and Dhirendra Brahmachari. Philosophically, we are strongly influenced by Sri Aurobindo and his vision of Integral Yoga - the unity of life and yoga.
We also practice Yoga Nidra and Sound Yoga, both of which are elements from our lineage of Swami Satyananda. In our courses on meditation and Tantra, we follow the Trika Tantra according to Swami Lakshman Joo, which was passed down to us through our teacher Mark S. G. Dyczkowski.
We teach Sukshma Vyayama, the three Pawanmuktasanas, a variety of Asanas, Kriyas, Matras, and also meditations according to the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra.
Our yoga follows the highest standards in quality and depth.
Not only are we a 300h YOGA ALLIANCE school, but we can also draw on the richness of our lineage. Our yoga teacher training programs incorporate the high quality of our lineage and are suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners.

The most authentic and profound yoga studio I’ve ever been to! I’m very grateful to have been able to do the YTT with Clemens and his team.
