Instructors

Manoj Rawat
International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres (Yoga)
Manoj or Yogi Manu's journey started after working for different corporations for the past eight years - that was when he truly decided to choose the right path. It was a truly pure and strong thought that guided him, and after learning and practicing yoga, he can proudly say that yoga changes and develops the feeling of being aware. He loves to travel, practice, and teach Sivananda yoga whenever and wherever life gives him an opportunity to do so. His favorite is meeting new people or the divine souls in order to learn, share and experience this vast, real life knowledge available around us.
