Vivek Arya
As a young boy, Sri Vivek’s passion for yoga was quickly obvious to father, who started him on the path to understanding. His thirst for knowledge led him to 15 years of living in an ashram, and into the Himalayas to study yoga and philosophy. Inspired by his burning desire to learn, the sages welcomed him, and taught him mystic ways unknown to many. Today, Sri Vivek is pursuing his PhD in yoga, with a goal to never stop learning and dedicate himself to humanity.
Sanjeev Pandey Ji

The techniques he uses to teach pranayama are so impactful that no student is left without becoming a perfect master of this breathing form. His love for yoga was so intense that he even left his running business and started a life of a true yogi. He adopts the basic tenets of Hathayogapradipika, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Gheranda Samhita in his teaching methodologies which make them so unique and interesting.
Sandeep Pandey Ji
Yogacharya Sandeep Pandey Ji is a master of meditation and pranayama. He had learned meditation and relaxation techniques from the different ashrams of Rishikesh which made him have a deeper insight into the many aspects of this art. He started his yogic journey as a disciple of Guru Swami Veda Bharti Ji in the Rama Sadhaka Ashram when he was only 11 years old. He is now pursuing Ph.D. in Yoga and is also now teaching the meditation and pranayama to the aspiring yogis.

Rahul Katariya

After growing up in a small village on the outskirts of Delhi in an encouraging yogic family, he pursued a career as a concept designer in Delhi.
