Upon registration, foreigners will be given the PAP (Protected Area Permit) – valid for one month – as Bir village is in an environmentally protected zone.

Yoga Roundtable Conference (YRC)
YRC is a concept founded on the need to have authenticity and true depth included in the teaching and learning of Yoga. To move deeper and higher into inner experiences beyond the reach of asana practice, the essential practices and techniques of Yoga should be included in the teaching curriculum of Yoga studios/ centres.
Our goal at Aryamarga Yoga is to help bring together authentic masters of the grand lineages and traditions of Yoga and the modern practitioners or teachers of Yoga from around the world in one place, here at Bir. The aim is for the codification and transmission of authentic inner yoga practices so that these practices can then be taught to students of Yoga around the world.
