Mohit

Mohit was born and brought up in a yogic family. Spirituality is something that he gained from his lineage. He regards Yoga as a bridge that connects individual consciousness to universal consciousness. It is the process of knowing the self.  Yoga is a connection of individuals to the reservoir of light, power, peace, and happiness. Yoga is a journey towards good health and happiness.

Even though he has practiced yoga since his childhood, he says breakthrough occurred in his only after the Yoga Teacher Training he did at Sivananda Yoga Vidya Peetham in Kerela, India under the direct teaching and guidance of enlightened gurus Swami Govindananda Saraswati, Swami Tatwarupananda Saraswati, Swami Nivedanananda, and Mani Raman. This sadhana as a disciple of such great gurus has changed his mindset, realizing that the journey of life remains incomplete unless we follow the path of Humanity, Spirituality, and Yoga.  

He regards the teaching of yoga as a process of creating an environment so that divine energy can flow and purify our body and mind. He is specialized in Shivananda Yoga Flow (75 minutes) in which he basically focuses on powerful breathings exercises, yogic exercises followed by modified Sun Salutation and Yoga Asanas, concluding the classes with a final deep mental, physical and spiritual relaxation.

Dev Yogini

Yoga has done lots of changes in my life since I started self practicing, after few years of body practice, part of me wants to know more about yoga as a lifestyle not just body Asanas; and that took me to Thailand seeking more about yoga and meditation. I had my first hatha Yoga teaching classes in Phuket, Thailand. After a year of journey in Thailand, universe brought me to India. There I’ve done 500hrs  multistyle YTT in Rishikesh. 
I have taught Ashtanga primary series in Beijing, China while I was studying traditional chines medicine and acupuncture .
It’s been  2years Since I’m sharing my experiences in different countries like Iran, Thailand, China, India and Nepal.
Yoga is about how you can connect to your body with inhalation and exhalation, And how it can be effective in our daily life, living in the moments.
Through practicing Asana we can reach to the miracle of breath and stillness.
That’s how I try to practice in my classes.

Joy

In 2015 I entered with my curious mind a shala in the south of the Netherlands.

I spent years of practice with my passionate teacher who has also a Zen background before I expanded my practice during traveling. I practice by fantastic KPJAYI teachers. Ken de Rolfer, Irena Bartolec and Ellen Johannessen.

I receive my diploma as an Ashtanga Vinyasa flow teacher in India and in recent years I was able to share my enthusiasm with many students in Bali, India, the Netherlands, and Nepal.

I’m an open-minded person who wants to learn from other people, cultures, and from what is happening around me and what’s happening inside me.

All levels are more than welcome in my class. Everyone must start somewhere someday.
