Instructors

Acharya Jagjeet Singh
Gurukul Kangri University, Haridwar Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200 (Yoga)
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.
