Instructors

Arya Vivek
Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 (Hatha Yoga)
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.
Rahul Katariya
Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500 (Hatha Yoga)
Rahul Ji is a passionately committed teacher of Yoga, having diligently internalised all aspects of yogic knowledge. 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. Outside of work he continued his spiritual growth through his own studies of ancient texts and scriptures. Soon, a series of experiences illuminated to him transcendental truths that inspired him to leave his job and immerse himself in the sacred yogic world.
Rahul Bhatt
Rahul Bhatt is a master practitioner of yoga, particularly skilled in asanas of Ashtanga. Through a combination of curiosity, talent, and tireless hard work, Yogi Rahul Bhatt has developed a deep understanding of the asanas, and a crystal-clear way of communicating difficult and nuanced postures to aspiring students. Rahul-ji believes in yoga as an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of developing the body, mind, and spirit, and seeks to help his students learn and grow in each of these areas.
Maya Om Panwar
Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200 (Yoga)
Maya-ji’s journey through yoga began a decade ago with a fascination of meditation, mantras, and finding modern ways to practice the teachings of ancient Indian philosophy. That fascination inevitably led to practicing the physical asanas of yoga, with a specific focus on the styles of Hatha and Kriya yoga. After travelling throughout India to deepen her spiritual practice, Maya-ji landed in Rishikesh to complete her Yoga Teacher Training, which she has used to help students connect with the holistic source of yoga.
