OUR TEAM – YOGA TRAINER


Yogi Anant

yoga-teacher

Yogi Anant was born in a small village cradled in the Himalayas near the Holy river Ganga. When he was a little boy he had his first meditative experiences, some wonderful moments which transformed his life. Convinced that meditation is his natural state, he started spending more and more time in nature, mind silenced with his soul enjoying a blissful state- divine Ananda. From then onwards, he started doing everything in peace, in silence undisturbed by the distractions outside.  His spiritual experiences deepened with time and when he was young he felt his mind going deeper and deeper into itself, into greater silence and serenity while in meditation. He strongly felt that human beings are much more than physical, vital and mental beings. Rather, they are spiritual beings, souls which are one with all- pulsating parts of One Brahman, evolving from state to a greater state and moving towards the complete realization of self-the one and only Self. Once this realization dawned on his young mind he received an inspiration to study spirituality in its deeps.  He was then convinced that his mission is to help his fellow beings reach the real bliss of existence. Inspired by the yogis who had found themselves fully in the spiritually charged Himalayas, he got absorbed in the study of the ancient yoga techniques, meant to help human beings discover the inner peace and harmony lying beneath the physical, vital, mental sheaths. His passion is to learn new things about yoga and holistic health through reading books and attendance of seminars. However, his individual sadhana goes on in full swing along with his outer works. He states, ‘Yoga is in my blood.’ He believes that every moment of our life can be filled with the divine Bliss and the divine Love with peace and health ensured if we are resolved to go for self-discovery, living within and then living without from within.

After he finished Master degree, he felt that his dream could not be fulfilled by anything other than yoga-the union with God in body, life, and mind. He decided to leave the beaten tracks and became a yoga teacher.

He signed up with the Yoga University in Rishikesh and after years of study, his qualifications include:

Post- Graduate Diploma in Yoga and Holistic Health from H.N.B. Garhwal University, Rishikesh

He then moved to Mumbai where he mostly worked as a personal yoga teacher for the ambitious and the affluent people who were feeling tired with the hurly burly of the big city lifestyle.

His goal is to awaken self-confidence in every individual. ‘It is extremely important to believe in and love oneself to progress in life, for the divine lives in us and we live in the divine. Loving oneself means loving God.’ he says.

Karuna Devi (Guest Teacher)

Karuna Devi is a qualified Ashtanga Yoga and Laughter Yoga teacher. Her true life journey began about 15 years ago when she was tormented by an inner unease which prompted her to look within herself to rid her of the restlessness.  In the course of soul-churning, she stumbled upon yoga and that thoroughly transformed her life.  She felt peace descending on her as her study of yoga began. Later, she learned the nuances of the yoga lifestyle from her teachers- Shree Paramhans Mahamandaleshvar and Swami Mahesvarananda. She is a founder of international system known as ‘Yoga in Daily Life’. Additional knowledge and skills of this realm she gained through her attendance of different seminars and through her practice of yoga under many renowned yoga teachers.

In course of her progressive and continuous practice of yoga, she discovered three fundamental facts that can help us build our life on a new foundation which also involves a rejection of the old habits and the old living pattern. These three fundamental facts are yoga as part of a daily routine, a balanced diet and laughing for 15 to 20 minutes every day.

She is invincibly convinced that if we continue to follow the three fundamentals daily positive aspects would begin to develop, not just in us but in the environment and the society we live in.

She says that yoga helped her with a complete transformation of her nutrition. She loves macrobiotic and completely vegetarian diet. She believes that it has a huge significance in improving vitality, self-confidence, and joy of living. However, she cautions that nutrition by itself is not 100% builder of a better tomorrow.
