Sunita Singh
Program Director
I started learning Yoga back then when it was not a popular thing to do and I was looking for some meaning in life, as I felt very uprooted in life. And I learnt it from one of the most controversial swamis of our time, Swami Dhirendra Brahmachaari at his Ashram in Delhi.. In 1998 I went to Norway, and taught my first official classes in yoga, both in Norway and Sweden. And from there started my own journey as a Learner of Yoga, and a teacher. I have always been both a student and a teacher of Yoga. This has kept my mind open to new forms of learning.
Prem Krishna Ananda
Program Director
Krishna approached yoga for the first time in his early twenties and since then he never left its path. The development of a strong self-practice brought him to share with others his accomplishments and discovery. This led to many years of teaching experience in India and in Europe. The professional success and personal gratification gathered along those years eventually merged into the idea of creating a teaching program completely based on Krishna’s method and vision.
Amit Katkoria
Program Manager
I began my journey into meditative life in 2000 after leaving full time job and surrendered myself to Abhyāsa (practicing) Sādhana (dedication) and Chaitanya (consciousness) of Yoga. I specialize in the practice of Hatha yoga. I started sharing my learning and understanding with friends and students. Today I continue to spread this warmth and passion for yoga with people of same interest all across.

Alida Maugeri
Teacher of YIN, Hatha, Nidra & Meditation
Alida started yoga many years ago when she was working in the legal industry in London. She always had a very active lifestyle, which became even more accelerated at that time. Her yoga practice very soon started to represent the only space where she could manage to slow down the mind, relax the body and reconnect with the soul even if for short intervals. Her classes are an invitation to reconnect and rediscover one Self. Through the observation of the breath and the body we can acknowledge our own and unique energy; and to eventually free and empower our being.
