Yogi Ashokananda was raised in India and has been practising yoga since early childhood when his Grandfather was his first teacher. Over many years Yogi has been fortunate to develop his teaching, experience and education of yoga under some of the great remote, Indian masters. He has taught the teachings of the Bihar School of Yoga, the Sivananda Ashram and the Shri Ved Niketan Ashram. Now, as a Yoga, Meditation and spiritual Master, he teaches a number of his own profound teachings, insights and disciplines which have their roots in ancient, sacred Indian tradition.
Yogi Ashokananda is considered to be one of the true existing masters of yoga and meditation. Himalayan Hatha Yoga and Prana Kriya Yoga are among his signature styles of yoga he teaches, all of which are based on traditional principles.
Ashokananda’s yoga is strong yet supportive and works through the entire body, cleansing and revitalising through special sequencing with a combination of sukshyam vyayam (subtle energy body exercise).
With a vast experience of many different forms of meditation, Yogi Ashokananda teaches some of the most simple and effective techniques to accept, transform and embrace
the material and spiritual aspects of ourselves. These include the Science of Relaxation active Meditation, Rising Sap and Atma Meditation, Kriya Shakti, Tantra and Kundalini Meditations. Yogi Ashokananda enjoys seeing people grow and evolve on all levels through his teaching, watching them change, rediscover themselves and find their own path. Through regular practice of yoga and meditation, he believes others can feel greater vitality, inner joy, harmony, peace, love and freedom passing through and embracing all the discomforts and comforts in the journey of life.
