    • Shatveer Singh Rana

      Traditional Hatha yoga teacher, Shatveer Singh Rana has been in yoga since the age of 15. He started studying in Sivananda.

Yogi Shatveer has truly dedicated himself to yoga. He loves to tell students that anything they attained very quickly, will be disappear very quickly, which means that when you more time spend to learn a thing, it will be yours forever.

    • Review by Vivian from Cook Islands

      "I had the chance to learn from Satver and I couldn't be more grateful. The way he conducts the class, the respect he has for the practice, his energy; it all makes him the perfect yoga teacher, because he is a true yogi. He can lead you, inspire, and transform your practice like no other, his adjustments are precise and he is a delight to be around. If you have the chance to practice under his guidance please do so, truly a transformation experience. I can't wait to go back to Rishikesh and be able to learn from him again."

      "Thank you!"

      "Totally recommended! One of the best teachers I have received lessons from in my life, Sattu. Not only for all the knowledge he has, he is also an excellent teacher for all the love and effort he puts during the time of teaching. I love the energy and how he focused the classes in proper alignment, giving you the tools to become an excellent yoga teacher, I will definitely go back to India for more classes with my dear teacher."

      "Highly recommended teacher! After only one month attending to daily Hatha yoga classes with Sattu, my practice is completely different in a very good way. He cares and shares lots of passion and knowledge. He is truly inspiring. I like him a lot. There is not much more to say. I already miss his class."
