He went on to become a media advertising manager, serving in the industry for over three decades. He rediscovered his love for yoga while on a pilgrimage and visit to the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwanthri Ashram with his wife, Karoona. Both of them have now fully dedicated their lives to spreading the message of Hatha yoga, peace, love, and laughter wherever their journey takes them.

Bijolai Palace Jodhpur in Rajasthan is a sprawling royal palace built in the 19th century by the ruling family of Marwar-Jodhpur.

The living space in the palace comprises of 30 rooms and thematic suites that are elegantly appointed with thoughtful amenities.

The living spaces at the palace either overlook the verdant courtyards and gardens, or the rustic expansive landscape of the Aravalis or the Bijolai lake itself. It exceeds the bespoke requirements of an arbiter of taste looking for leisure retreats. Wake up to the soothing and refreshing notes of the santoor, and while you head out for a little walk in the morning by the lake, you are sure to be astonished by the family of geese (101 of them) that have made the Bijolai lake their humble abode.

The palace is nestled in a small range of the Aravalis, just about eight kilometers from the center of Jodhpur, fleetingly close to the city, yet far enough for the nights to be quiet giving you a good night’s sleep and a promise of fresh clean morning air.

    "Karoona Neelkanth is a skilled and dynamic yoga instructor. He is sensitive to the needs of each individual body and person, he has a wonderful knack for making each class participant, beginner to advanced, feel welcome, comfortable, challenged and motivated. His soothing voice and manner, along with his infectious sense of humor, make for a relaxing stimulating, energizing, and well-paced class. Karoona takes time to explain yoga concepts during each class and to gently adjust students in the various asanas. His class contains interesting useful and thoughtful material for me, a 30 year yoga practitioner who certifies yoga teachers, as well as for the novice yoga student. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Karoona Neelkanth wholeheartedly."

    "Dear Karoona, Just wanted to say a big thank you for teaching me so much about yoga Nidra, Tratak and meditation for one month at Ramakrishna Mission Ashram Cherrapunji. It's been a wonderful experience being one of your students! I just wanted to say thank you for being such an inspirational teacher. I have really enjoyed learning yoga with you and have felt a much needed positive shift in my life, so thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills. The best part is that I have carried that sense of peace, awareness and control that we blossomed over the month. The session was very special for everything I learned in the ashram, under your guidance. The shivananda asana practice you gave me has stayed with me pretty much daily the seed of my days now was planted in the ashram and watered by your guidance, so thought you’d like to hear about the flowers! I know you’ll say it’s not you, but I’d disagree. You gave me a huge gift, with the way you taught, your example, your patience, humor, warmth and the unique, authentic, shining you bought to the ashram. Thank you very much!"
