Yogi Vishnu Panigrahi

Pranayama Yoga Teacher

Vishnu teaches your evening meditation class. His peaceful and well-informed approach to teaching will help you to discover your true self. He encourages you to strip away all of the layers of social conditioning and find the stillness within. In his class you will learn various approaches to meditation which can be applied to both your personal and teaching practices. A kind, understanding and patient teacher, Vishnu is here to guide you on your meditation journey.

My life is dedicated to human unity, love, and compassion through our work at kundalini Yoga Ashram and The World Peace Yoga School. Kundalini Tantra, Pranayama & Meditation are my passions and my goal is to help set you free so that you can be your true authentic self.

Born in the UK to an Indian family, I was drawn to the path of spirituality from a young age, but it was life's mis-steps and experiences that gradually made the call from my soul loud enough to leave behind my life in the UK and return to India.

Yoga was the path that lifted the veil for me to live life once again in the present moment. I quickly immersed myself in the wisdom of yoga, learning from many of the great masters of the Himalayas, qualifying as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and going on to master Sound Healing, Cacao Rituals and Reiki which I love to bring into my Kundalini practice. My life a service to humanity.

As Kundalini Teacher of kundalini Yoga Ashram, my vision is to share the beauty and power of the wisdom that changed my life with you.

Kundalini yoga ashram is like home. Everything you need is here and only steps away from the beautiful Ganga river. All of the teachers are very knowledgeable. I recommend to anyone who wants to experience the true yoga in India to come here and study.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality I had an amazing month at the Kundalini Yoga Ashram, surrounded by beautiful people and learning from knowledgeable and trustworthy teachers/gurus. You will receive knowledge about practices that you can never get by self-study only. The schedule and kundalini practices (for the kundalini yoga teacher training) were intense and demanding full devotion. But on the other hand we also had a lot of fun, celebrating birthdays, Christmas, going for Sunday trips. Like one big kundalini yoga family I warmly recommend to visit this Ashram.
