Vishnu

Yoga Alliance Certified E-RYT 500

Born in a traditional, devout Hindu family, it was at an early age, that Vishnu started visiting Ashrams, Temples and Monasteries. There, he came across the profound understanding and teachings of Vedanta and the origins of traditional yoga.

From an early age,Vishnu began to question life. What it was, why, and where it was meant to go. Beginning to look inside himself and seeking the guidance of ancient sages and yogis, he began the study of scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, Mahabharata, the Ramayana and many others. Henceforth, well versed in eastern philosophy, he has a deep rooted respect and appreciation for the yogic science, life and its divine manifestation. His quest for reality taught him to live life as a beautiful, universal experience. Having accumulated a vast amount of experience teaching students from all corners of the world, his passion lies in studying and sharing the deeply rooted and vast philosophy of the Yogas, encouraging us to question reality and find peace deep within ourselves. 

A charming and dedicated Yogi, a natural teacher, Vishnu’s humour is full of life, making his classes lively and stimulating. Basing his teaching of both hatha yoga practice and philosophy on ancient texts, his passion is felt and ever present. 

Based in Darjeeling with his family, Vishnu also travels, teaches and conducts various courses and workshops in Varanasi and Czechia.
