About Vivek

viv 01

 

Vivek was born into a family where the Principles which form the basis of Yoga practice were routine family traditions and where his grandparents chanted mantras daily. Being very perceptive from an early age, he learned the Mantra and Hatha traditions of his family swiftly and very quickly began to participate in the families' more traditional Yoga practices. Then from the age of 14, he diligently learned and practised Hatha and Jnana Yoga for 4 years under the guidance of Satish and practiced Kundalini Kriya Yoga for 2 years under Swami Gyan Vijay Saraswatis watchful eyes. At the age of 20 he graduated as a Sivananda trained Yoga teacher in Vrindavan in 2009.

Vivek is an Honours Graduate in PPE (Philosophy, Politics & Economics) from Oxford University where he also taught Yoga. He was awarded the title of Yoga Shiromani by Swami Sivadasananda of the International Sivananda Yoga Centres following a rigourous 6 week assessment and examination and was blessed by all of his teachers at the end of the course.

Vishaad Workshop feedback..

I found the workshop interesting and very relaxed and the pace was just right to enable me to absorb. I feel that the workshop has enriched my yoga journey by helping me achieve a deeper awareness, I also realize I still have a long way to go. Thank you Satish !


Depression & Yoga Workshop

I've found the two three-hour workshops to be challenging and enlightening. I feel supported - v important way to feel when facing challenging stuff. Whereas in my experience, depression is frightening/bewildering, this journey seems to be good hard work and exciting, reuniting me with myself, if that makes sense! Thanks Satish.
