Come by and feel home

Our beautiful academy, Matsya Yoga Studio, is located in Josefstadt, at the heart of Vienna, 1080. We boast a lovely yoga room and all the facilities needed for daily life. We have a well-equipped kitchen, two restrooms, and a changing room. Yoga mats are also available on-site. Yoga studio courses and classes can be booked online – of course, just dropping by is always welcome ;-)

We are a place meant to be a home. The lounge and the kitchen in the yoga studio invite you to stay, and the small library inspires browsing and reading. For those attending our workshops and yoga teacher training, there's the option to stay overnight in the studio if a sleeping spot is available. Our studio is a home – in the truest sense.

Our Lineage

The core of our lineage traces back to Sri Aurobindo and his vision of Integral Yoga. Sri Aurobindo was a revolutionary, philosopher, and visionary. In 1968 Mira Alfassa founded Auroville based on Sri Aurobindo's ideas – a societal vision where continuous inner growth, perpetual inner youth, ecological sustainability, and unity with the highest ideals were to be lived.

This unity of ideals and daily life is to be facilitated through Yoga.

Ānandamayī - Chaitanyamayī - Satyamayī - Pāramī is our mantra that expresses this spirit. It is the mantra of our school, founded on this spirit, the desire to make life fuller through Yoga.

More Complete and more whole.

Our Hatha Yoga practice is based on the Yoga of Swami Vidyananda, a follower of Sri Aurobindo and also a disciple of Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Thus, in the practical aspect of our lineage, we are rooted in the tradition of Satyananda Yoga, yet with a broader philosophical basis.

At the same time, we explore the origins of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Dhirendra Brahmachari. This Yoga is static, very quiet, expansive, and beautiful.

We learn and teach meditation inspired by Kashmir Shaivism from our teacher Mark S. G. Dyczkowski, a disciple of Swami Lakshmanjoo.



Oṃ – She, the Delight

(We invoke supreme bliss)



She, the Consciousness

(We invoke supreme consciousness)



She, the Truth

(We invoke supreme truth)



She, the Supreme



All Nature dumbly calls to her alone

To heal with her feet the aching throb of life

And break the seals on the dim soul of man

And kindle her fire in the closed heart of things.


Records of Yoga, Śrī Aurobindo (81.24)
