Yogi Acharya Jagjeet is a saintly personality by birth. He was blessed to have taken birth in a spiritual family. He has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than 11 years. He feels fortunate to have Acharya Karamveerji (Swami Ramadeva’s guru brother) as his yoga guru. Even after acquiring skills in yogic therapies and doing meditation in the Himalayas, he had an urge to go deeper, in order to gain more awareness of yoga therapies; as a result, he opted to learn and work enthusiastically on Shatkarma.
Onit Kumar
Onit Kumar is a well qualified and experienced instructor of Hatha yoga. He is regarded as one of the very inspiring Hatha yoga teachers in Rishikesh. He has in-depth knowledge and has been practicing yoga therapy, marma therapy, alternative therapy, Hatha yoga, and yoga philosophy. He owes this to his yoga practice and the blessings of all the masters he learned from. He is also specialized in teaching physical, breathing and mental training techniques to students of different sex and age from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Manish Kumar Prajapati
In Manish’s eyes, Yoga is the gateway to learning and understanding your true-self, to see beyond the physical and discover the subtilities of your authentic character. He believes that the beauty of yoga for him, is that it always gives satisfaction and joy, in every form. On his unique path, he has developed qualities allowing him to enjoy each moment within society, and these qualities he carries with him into his teaching. Manish feels that to practice yoga is to practice conscious living, and this is a view he integrates into his classes.
