The Himalayan Institute of Buffalo is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 1974. Our aim is to promote health, self-awareness, and spiritual well-being through the practice and teachings of yoga. Our programs are open to all, and there are no membership requirements to enroll in classes. As a volunteer organization, our students and staff generously help us maintain our facility and accomplish the many teaching and administrative tasks that keep us active.
We offer classes, workshops, and a variety of other events and programs throughout the year. A free brochure, mailed bi-monthly, contains all our programs—and you’ll find them listed on this website as well. We regularly participate in community outreach activities through presentations at businesses, schools, community health fairs, and employee-assistance programs. We also help our local community through charitable efforts.
